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.
