Patchogue, NY| After being named Skyline Conference Player of the Week on Monday afternoon, senior Andrea Iavarone of the St. Joseph's College (L.I.) women's basketball team collected three more weekly awards on Tuesday.
Adding to her long list of career accolades, Iavarone is again a member of both the D3Hoops.com National Team of the Week and the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association's (MBWA) Divisions II-III Honorable Mention. Rounding out the week's honors is the forward's selection as Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Metro Player of the Week.
Iavarone has three times this season been included on the National Team of the Week and four times appeared on the MBWA's Honorable Mention. Her ECAC Player of the Week selection is the second such honor of her career.
An eventful week for Iavarone saw the senior break a handful of program records. At SJC-Brooklyn on February 6, Iavarone posted a triple-double of 25 points, 24 rebounds, and 10 blocks. The performance saw her become only the second player in program history to eclipse the 1,000 rebound mark. Additionally, the forward broke the program's single-season blocks record (now 56) and matched the single-game block record.
In a win over Yeshiva on February 8, Iavarone dropped 21 points and became the program's all-time leading scorer. As of Monday, her career total came to 1,443 points. And on Saturday, in a loss to Old Westbury, the Miller Place, NY native grabbed 13 rebounds to break the SJC single-season rebound record.
Iavarone currently leads the Skyline Conference in scoring (20.6 PPG) and rebounding (16.3 RPG) and ranks 19th and third in the nation, respectively, in the same categories.
