University of Maine freshman Laia Sole has won the America East Rookie of the Week for the second consecutive week in the early parts of the 2016-17 season.

The Black Bears went 1-1 over the last seven days and Sole helped the Bears with 14.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 4 rebounds in the games versus Harvard and St. Peters University during that time.

The freshman from Spain is second on the team in scoring (12.8 points per game) and leads in assists (13).  Sole also has logged the second most time on the floor, only trailing senior captain Sigi Koizar in that category.

The Black Bears will face the #3 ranked South Carolina Gamecocks on Monday night at 7 p.m. as they look to improve their record above 2-2.
