RICHMOND, Va. – Sophomore forward Shae Kelley of the Old Dominion University women’s basketball team has been named the Colonial Athletic Association’s Co-Player of the Week along with senior Elena Delle Donne of the University of Delaware, it was announced on Monday by the league office.
Kelley (Denver, Colo./Denver East) helped ODU go 2-0 last week as she averaged 17 points and 8.5 rebounds per game and collected her team-leading seventh double-double of the season in Thursday’s 75-64 win over William and Mary.
The sophomore has scored in double figures in five straight games and nine of the last 12 games. From the field last week, Kelley shot a stellar .750 (12-for-16) including a season-best .875 (7-for-8) on Sunday in ODU’s blowout win over Hofstra, 80-57.
While going 10-of-14 from the free throw line (.714), she added six assists, five steals and a block on the week and has now scored in double-digits in 19 games this season.
Kelley becomes the second Lady Monarch honored as CAA Player of the Week after senior Jackie Cook took home those honors back on Nov. 19 and Monday is the fifth overall weekly award for ODU as freshmen LaQuanda Younger and Galaisha Goodhope have combined to take home three Rookie of the Week honors this season.
Old Dominion rounds out the regular season with a pair of road games beginning Thursday at 7 p.m. at James Madison before their season finale on Sunday, March 3 at 2 p.m. at Northeastern.
