AMHERST, Mass. - After leading the UMass women's basketball team in scoring in both games last week, freshman Jasmine Watson was selected as the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week and named UMass Athlete of the Week on Monday. The 6-3 center was previously honored by the A-10 earlier this year as the league's Rookie of the Week on Jan. 18.

Watson averaged 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 assists over two games last week for the Minutewomen and shot a blistering 13-for-17 (.765). She poured in a career-high 21 points in the squad's 60-50 win over Fordham last Saturday, shooting 9-for-12, and adding a team-best eight rebounds and three blocks.

Against St. Bonaventure, Watson went 4-for-5 from the field and had a team-leading 12 points versus the Bonnies. She has posted double figure point totals in eight of the past 10 games and is currently the top rookie scorer in A-10 play with an average of 13.6 points per-game.
