New York, NY| Senior forward Andrea Iavarone collected her second weekly accolade in as many days on Tuesday afternoon when she was included in the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association's Women's Divisions II-III Honorable Mention. The Miller Place, NY native appeared on the Skyline Conference Weekly Honor Roll on Monday evening.

Iavarone posted a double-double in all three of SJC's matches, extending her season double-double total to 14. In an 85-29 dismantling of Sarah Lawrence on Tuesday, the senior went for 27 points, 14 rebounds, three blocks and three steals. After a 22 point, 16 rebound performance in a loss to Mount St. Vincent on Thursday, the Miller Place, NY native went for 25 points, 16 boards and three blocks in a defeat at Purchase on Saturday.

As of Tuesday morning, Iavarone led the conference in scoring (20.4 PPG) and rebounding (15.6 RPG) and ranked 23rd and fourth in the nation, respectively, in the same categories.  

Now with 1,376 career points, Iavarone is 31 points away from becoming the program's all-time leading scorer.
