After defeating St. Joseph’s College – Long Island on Saturday freshman forward Rosa Perone earned City University of New York Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week honors.
Staten Island cruised past the Golden Eagles, 87-50, in their lone game of the week. Perone started in her first collegiate game on Saturday and poured in 9 points and grabbed five rebounds in 16 minutes of action.
Perone gave the Dolphins a dominating presence inside the paint which is something the Dolphins have lacked in years past. Perone used her size inside to draw the double team while opened up the deadly range of the Dolphins who sank several three-point shots.
The Dolphins are back in action on Wednesday, at the CSI Sports & Rec Center for a 7:00 pm start against Drew University.
