Tamulionis Named NEWMAC Defensive Player of the Week

WESTWOOD, Mass.—Babson College junior Katherine Tamulionis (Foxboro, Mass.) was tabbed as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Defensive Player of the Week on Monday afternoon.

Tamulionis headlined a defense that held Wheaton and Coast Guard to just 32.7 percent shooting while forcing 47 turnovers in back-to-back wins last week. She averaged 10.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.5 steals as the Beavers rebounded from Monday's 67-63 loss at No. 7/8 Tufts with a pair of conference victories.

Tamulionis had 10 points, two steals and a blocked shot in Wednesday's 77-43 triumph at Wheaton on Wednesday, and followed it up with 14 points and three steals as the Green and White defeated Coast Guard, 61-47, on Saturday to remain tied atop the NEWMAC standings.

Babson (15-7, 11-2 NEWMAC) returns to action on Wednesday when it hosts WPI at 6 p.m.
