After her first collegiate start and third collegiate game, former Hopkins basketball star Sydney Coffey has been named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week, Marist athletics announced Monday.
The honor follows a Marist victory Saturday in which Coffey helped her team to a 56-45 win over Princeton.
Coffey scored 13 points, held 2012 All-American Niveen Rasheed to 3-17 shooting and forced Rasheed into five turnovers.
Coffey is the quickest player to start under Marist Head Coach Brian Giorgis, who’s in his 11th season as the team’s head coach.
In high school, she was a member of the Royals girls basketball team that won back-to-back state championships in 2011 and 2012 and a Miss Basketball finalist.
