Paw Prints Women's Basketball

The Big East women’s basketball weekly awards are out and UConn Huskies point guard Renee Montgomery was chosen as the Big East Player of the Week for the week-ending 11/30.

Montgomery averaged 24.5 points per game, while shooting 59.4 percent (19-of-32) from the field in Connecticut’s two wins last week at Brigham Young (97-46) on Nov. 25 and at home against No. 4/4 Oklahoma (106-78) on Nov. 30. The senior guard also averaged 7.5 assists per game and shot 64.3 percent (9-of-14) from 3-point range. Montgomery put together a career night against Oklahoma. She registered career-highs with 30 points and 13 assists. The assist total tied the single-game record in UConn history, and it was also the first double-double of her career. Montgomery dropped 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, including 5-of-6 from the 3-point stripe, at BYU.

The Huskies have one final game before they break for final exams as the Holy Cross Crusaders come to Gampel Pavilion on Wednesday night.
