UMW's Dye Named CAC Women's Basketball Player of the Week
Mary Washington junior center CAROL DYE (Springfield, Va./Lake Braddock) was named the CAC Women’s Basketball Player of the Week after averaging 13.0 points and 7.5 rebounds and leading the Eagles to victories over a pair of CAC rivals that were undefeated in conference play prior to the game. Dye hit 8-of-11 field goal attempts on the way to a game-high 16 points and just missed a double-double with nine rebounds in a midweek win at Salisbury. She then went 5-for-9 from the field on the way to a 10-point, six rebound performance in Saturday’s showdown vs. York. For the week, she hit 65% from the field and added two assists and two steals for the 15th-ranked Eagles.
