Cassidy Harrison - Athlete of the Week

Sophomore guard Cassidy Harrison (Foxborough, Mass. / Foxborough) of the Becker College women's basketball team has been named the Becker College Athlete of the Week for the week ending February 25, 2018.

Harrison had an incredible week for the Hawks, as she led Becker to a 3-0 week and their first NECC title. The sophomore averaged 19.7 points and four steals per game while shooting 47 percent from the floor and 45 percent from behind the arc. At Mitchell on Thursday night, Harrison led the upset of the second-seeded Mariners, pouring in 23 points the way to a 75-50 win. Then playing at Newbury on Saturday in the Championship final, Harrison again scored 23 points as the Hawks punched their ticket to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2008.

Harrison will lead the Hawks to Amherst College on Friday night for a 7:00 p.m. game in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
