Holmes and Knockwood honored by Skyline

Link to weekly release

New York, NY— The Sage College's women's basketball team had two players honored on Monday with the release of the weekly awards. Rookie guard Macie Holmes (Amsterdam, NY/Mekeel Christian Academy) was named the Skyline Rookie of the Week, while junior forward Krystyn Knockwood (Troy, NY/Troy) earned Honor Roll status for her efforts.

Sage, which went 2-0 last week and tallied victories over Mt. St. Mary College and Farmingdale State College in Skyline Conference contests last week, is now 13-2 overall with a perfect 9-0 mark in Skyline Conference play.  Sage brings a 12-game win streak into the week and will look to break the program's all-time record for consecutive wins when the Gators visit St. Joseph's College-Brooklyn on January 20 for a Skyline match-up.

Holmes surpassed her career high of 18 points she scored on Tuesday night in Sage's overtime win over MSMC as she tallied 19 points against FSC. She made 6-of-8 shots from the floor, while hitting 5 of 7 three pointers with five assists. She averaged 18.5 points per contest over the Gators' two-win week in Skyline play, shooting 12-for-17 from the field (.706) and 10-for-14 beyond the 3-point arc (.714).

In addition to Holmes's exploits from the perimeter, Sage got low-post help last week from Knockwood, who averaged 10 points, 10 rebounds and 5.5 blocks per outing. Knockwood had a double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds, while also tallying five blocks in the game against FSC. She moved into the No. 2 spot in the career blocks list with 68 as she moved ahead Kelly Murphy (65, 1999-2002). The five block effort came on the heels of a personal-best six blocked shots in the victory over MSMC on Tuesday night.
