SHU freshman Ericka Norman (Chino Hills, CA) averaged 16 points and four assists in a pair of victories for the women's basketball team en route to being named the Choice Hotels/NEC rookie of the week. The 5-7 point guard poured in a career high 19 points in Sacred Heart's 74-54 win over Bryant Saturday evening. Norman followed that performance with a 13 point, four assist performance two days later in a critical conference win over Central Connecticut State.
Norman leads the NEC in assist to turnover ratio with a 1.18 mark, averaging 3.4 assists through the first 27 games of her rookie season. Since being inserted to the lineup as a starter in January Norman has averaged 8.7 points and 4.0 assists per game. She has also become a more than solid defender for SHU, tallying 50 steals in 2010-11.
Norman shot 64.7 percent (11-of-17) combined from the field versus Bryant and CCSU as the Pioneers kept pace with second-place co-inhabitants Monmouth and Long Island. Sacred Heart takes on the Hawks Saturday afternoon at 1:00 pm in the William H. Pitt Center.
