Beck named A-10 player of the year

Senior Kim Beck was named the Atlantic 10 player of the year in a poll conducted by the conference’s coaches, the conference announced Wednesday. Beck is the first GW player in four years to earn the accolade.

Averaging 13.6 points per game and ranking third nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.60), Beck was also named first-team all-conference for the third straight year. Only two other Colonials have ever been named to the conference’s top list three times.

“It’s always good to get recognition,” the always-humble Beck said. “Our team has gotten a lot of recognition this year.”

Junior Jessica Adair was also named to the first team while senior Sarah-Jo Lawrence earned third-team honors. Senior Whitney Allen and Beck were named to the all-conference defensive team.
