The College of New Rochelle sophomore center Jasmine Brandon (Jersey City, NJ/St. Anthony HS) has been named the Women’s Basketball Player of the Week by the Association of Division III Independents (AD3I) and the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, it was announced Tuesday by the respective conference offices.
Brandon posted her NCAA Division III-leading second 40+ point game, scoring 42 points in the Blue Angels' non-conference matchup with Pine Manor College. The center shot nearly 70% (16-23) from the field and 81.8% (9-11) from the line to become the first DIII player this season to eclipse the 40-point barrier twice. She added a game-high 14 rebounds to record her seventh double-double of the season.
This marks the third time Brandon has received this honor from AD3I and the second time the HVIAC has recognized her as Player of the Week.
