New York, NY- The Sage Colleges' women's basketball senior guard Frankie Pearson (Hoosick Falls, NY/Hoosick Falls Central) was named the Skyline Conference player of the week following her impressive showing last week on the hardwood.
She helped the Gators go 3-0 last week while extending the team's win streak to four games. She added a career-best 25 points and nine assists in leading the Gators to the 78-50 victory on Saturday over Skyline Conference opponent, St. Joseph's College-Brooklyn. Pearson shot 9-16 from the floor with her own best mark of seven three-pointer, which also ties the program's best three-point single-game record as well. Sage's three-point field goal mark has now been equaled on four separate occasions, while Pearson's scoring output on Saturday bettered her previous high of 23 points from January, 29, 2014 when the Gators faced ACPHS.
For the week, she averaged 17 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.3 blocks per outing over that stretch, while shooting 11-for-23 (.478) from 3-point land. Sage's women's basketball record book continues to reflect Pearson's success. She now has 920 points, which stands No. 6 all-time. She is poised to become the fifth player in Sage women's basketball history to earn her 1,000th career point. Pearson has now added a program-leading 166 career three-pointers, while also moving to the No. 4 spot in career games played with 94. Pearson is also among the program's Top 10 in career steals, assists, and blocked shots.
