Cassidy Earns America East All-Conference, All-Academic Honors
Carlee Cassidy is the first Retriever to earn all-conference honors three times in the America East.
Cassidy becomes the first Retriever ever to earn all-conference honors three times during UMBC’s seven years in the America East, as she was tabbed to the first team in 2008 and the second team in 2009.
Cassidy leads the Retrievers with 13.1 points per game this season, and she has posted career bests with 134 rebounds (4.6 rpg) and 62 assists. Her 68 three-pointers are tied for the sixth-best single-season total in UMBC history, giving her three of the top 10 spots on the list.
The senior has put together one of the best four-year careers in program history, as she holds UMBC’s career records for 3-pointers (246), 3-point attempts (760) and games played (118). In addition, she ranks among UMBC’s all-time leaders in many other categories, with school Division I records for points (1,609), free throws (343) and field goals attempted (1,425). In addition, her 13.6 ppg career scoring average and .789 free throw percentage rank third, and she is the fourth Retriever ever to drain 500 field goals.
Cassidy also excels in the classroom, boasting a 3.35 grade-point average as a sociology/new media and communications double major. She also earned All-Academic team honors as a sophomore in 2008.
The Retrievers (13-16, 7-9 AE) finished in a three-way tie for fourth place in the America East standings – their highest finish ever – but earned the sixth seed in this weekend’s America East Championship by virtue of tiebreakers. They will face No. 3 Boston University (15-13, 11-5 AE) on Friday at 2:15 p.m. at
