Junior forward Ciara McKissick (Charlton, Mass. / Shepherd Hill Regional) of the Becker College women's basketball team has been named the New England Collegiate Conference Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday, January 7th, 2018.

McKissick registered her first career triple-double, as Becker prevailed over the visiting Mount Ida College this past Tuesday. She scored 12 points with 14 rebounds and ten assists. The junior also recorded two steals and a block on the defensive end. McKissick is one of only ten players in Division III Women's Basketball to register a triple-double this season.

It is the second straight week a Hawk has earned Player of the Week honors for women's basketball.

McKissick was also named the Becker Athlete of the Week for the same period. She had previously been named Becker Athlete of the Week for the week ending September 17th in women's soccer. She is the first student-athlete of the year to be named Athlete of the Week in two different sports.

Women's Basketball is back on the court on Monday when they play at MCLA at 6:00 p.m.
