UMaine’s Saar Named Rookie of the Week
Dor Saar of the University of Maine women's basketball team has earned America East Rookie of the Week honors for the second week in a row.
It marks the third time she has been named Rookie of the Week this season. Saar joins Stony Brook's McKenzie Bushee as the only players to earn the honor three times in the 2017-18 season.
In three games, including wins over Hartford and New Hampshire, Saar averaged 9.7 points, 4.7 assists and 2 steals while shooting 41.7 percent from three-point range.
The Israeli point guard recorded a career-high 14 points and a career-high four rebounds in Sunday's 8-point loss to Stony Brook.
Saar has now reached double digits in scoring in three of Maine's last five games.
