College of Staten Island women’s basketball freshman Angelique Price had a quality holiday break, and the rookie guard took home CUNYAC Rookie of the Week honors for the period spanning from December 20 – January 3. The Dolphins went 1-2 during that stretch, but Price was a catalyst in the games and was the conference’s top freshman producer.
Price was crisp primarily in CSI’s first two games of the weekly stretch. Against William Paterson, she logged a 4-7 performance from the field, adding a three-point bucket and four rebounds, for a total of 11 points in the overtime loss. Six days later, Price against struck for four field goals, including a three in a 9-point, five-rebound performance against Yeshiva, a 29-point CSI win. Price was left off of the score sheet against Brooklyn on Sunday, but logged seven rebounds and a blocked shot in only eight minutes of work.
Price is averaging 14.6 minutes per game this season, averaging 5.8 points and 2.3 rebounds. She is shooting 47% from beyond the arc (9-19) and is fifth on the squad in steals as well,
CSI gets back to action tonight at the Sports & Recreation Center, hosting City College of New York at 5:30pm.
