  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers sophomore Cappie Pondexter (Chicago, IL) has been named the BIG EAST Conference Women’s Basketball Rookie of the Week, the league office has announced.

    Pondexter, a 5-9 guard, led RU with 16 points and four assists in the Scarlet Knights’ 52-42 victory at Temple Dec. 10. Pondexter also tied for the team lead with a season-high nine rebounds, shooting 50.0 (6-12) percent from the field and 80.0 (4-5) percent from the free-throw line. She currently leads the Knights with 14.7 points and 5.3 assists per game, while ranking second in rebounding (5.8 rpg). In addition, she has led and/or shared the team lead in scoring four times, in rebounding twice, and in assists six times this season.

    A preseason second-team all-BIG EAST selection, Pondexter is the first Scarlet Knight to earn the weekly rookie award since Shawnetta Stewart received the honor on Feb. 23, 1998. In all, this marks the 10th time a Scarlet Knight has been named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week.

    Rutgers (4-2) will finish the month of December with back-to-back home games, taking on Harvard Saturday, Dec. 21, at 2:00 p.m. and George Washington Sunday, Dec. 29, at 2:00 p.m.
