BOSTON - UMBC women's basketball freshman guard Tyler Moore (Portsmouth, Va./Norfolk Academy) was named the America East Rookie of the Week for the week ending Dec. 26, the conference announced Monday.
In the Retrievers' lone game of the week, Moore helped lead the team to snap a seven-game losing streak with a 57-45 victory over LIU Brooklyn on Dec. 21. The freshman tied her career-high of 19 points after going 6-of-13 from the field and knocking in four three-point baskets. Moore also went 3-of-4 from the charity stripe and had two steals.
The Retrievers will be back on the hardwood after the holiday break, when they travel to the Cavalier Classic Dec. 28-29. UMBC will take on host Virginia on the 28th before facing off with Liberty the next day.
