April 20, 2011
AMHERST, Mass. - UMass women's basketball guard Megan Zullo will return for the Minutewomen in 2011-12 after being granted a sixth year by the NCAA. Zullo was awarded the additional year of eligibility due to the injuries she sustained as a freshman at North Carolina State and as a junior.
"We are extremely excited to have Meg back with us next season," said UMass head coach Sharon Dawley. "It is always a pleasure to coach someone who loves to compete as much as she does and who has shown such passion for both UMass and the game of basketball. Meg is certainly a weapon for us on offense, but more importantly, she brings great leadership skills to a very young team."
Zullo played all 30 games this season and averaged 10.5 points per-game, good for fourth on the squad and was third in the Atlantic 10 win an average of 4.5 assists per-game. Her total of 135 helpers was the ninth-best single season total of all time in program history, while her tally of 70 three-pointers is second-most on the single season list. She set UMass records for minutes played in a season in 2010-11 with 1,136 and minutes average (37.9).
Through two seasons with the Minutewomen after coming from N.C. State, Zullo has totaled 537 career points, 207 assists and is 124-for-335 (.370) beyond the arc. She will enter her final year ranked fifth on the UMass career list in three-point percentage and assist average (3.5), while ranking sixth in career three-point field goals made (124) and seventh in minutes average (31.9).
