Daly Sullivan Named Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week

Somerset, N.J. (December 26, 2017) -- Mount St. Mary's University freshman guard Daly Sullivan has been named the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week, as announced by the league office on Tuesday.

Sullivan dropped a career-high 23 points on 8-of-19 shooting and a 6-for-13 mark from long range, as she helped fuel a fourth quarter comeback last Tuesday in the Mount's 66-63 victory at Maryland Eastern Shore. Sullivan registered 20 of her 23 points in the second half, and helped Mount St. Mary's erase a seven-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Sullivan's six three-pointers are tied for eighth most in a game by a Mountaineer in program history. The rookie now has six double-digit scoring performances on the season, including each of the last three contests.

Sullivan and the Mountaineers return to action for the NEC opener this Friday (December 29) at Central Connecticut.
