Paige Rookie of the Week Again

For the third time this season, WVU freshman point guard Yolanda Paige has been named the Rookie of the Week in the Big East Conference.

Paige helped West Virginia to a 1-1 week by averaging 19.5 points, 6.0 assists and 3.5 rebounds.

She scored a game-high 21 points and added seven rebounds in a 68-56 loss to No. 21/20 Boston College. In a 65-50 victory over Providence, Paige netted 18 points and added nine assists. In the two games, the guard shot 56.0 percent from the floor (14-25).

Paige has played every minute of WVU's last four games.

Only Jacqueline Batteast of Notre Dame, with six (three shared) has more weekly honors than Paige.
