  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (December 9, 2013) –  Junior forward Betnijah Laney (Clayton, Del.) was named to the American Athletic Conference Honor Roll for the second time this season following her double-double performance last week at Davidson.

    Laney added in her third double-double of the season in helping Rutgers to a 66-35 win at Davidson last Wednesday night.  She tied her season-high with 15 points and added in 11 boards.  The junior Scarlet Knight shot a season best 54.5 percent from the floor (6-of-11) and sunk both her attempts from the free throw line.  Additionally she dished the ball out four times while only committing two turnovers.

    On the season, Laney is averaging 10.7 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.

    This is Laney’s second nod to the AAC Honor Roll.  She also earned the honor following RU’s season opening win over Princeton in which she recorded 14 points and 10 rebounds and was one of six Scarlet Knights in double figures.

    The Rutgers women’s basketball team returns home to the RAC for a three-game homestand beginning with Wagner on Thursday, Dec. 12 at 7:30 p.m.  It will be dollar dog night at the concession stand (limit five per transaction).  Fans can also buy a $5.00 general admission ticket with a toy donation to Rutgers’ Student-Athletic Advisory Committee’s (SAAC) annual toy and book drive to benefit children in the Middlesex County Head Start Program with a holiday gift.
