UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, Va. -- Freshman Liz Brown garnered Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week honors after averaging a double-double in a 2-0 week for Richmond.
The Cockeysville, Md. native averaged 10.5 points and 12.0 rebounds in wins over Rhode Island and Saint Joseph's. Brown scored 10 points and grabbed 15 rebounds against Rhody, while pouring in 11 points and corralling nine boards against Saint Joseph's.
Brown also shot 50 percent (9-18) from the floor and added a pair of steals and assists.
