BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College senior women's basketball player Jessie Mayol (Westbrook, Maine) was named Player of the Week today by the New England Small College Athletic Conference. The eighth- ranked Polar Bears are unbeaten at 8-0 on the year and will host Plymouth State on Thursday evening.
The senior captain averaged 13 points per game in two big non-conference road wins last weekend over Mary Washington and Swarthmore. Overall, Mayol is averaging 10.6 points per game and 4.2 assists on the season, including a solid 34-18 assist-to-turnover ratio. The Polar Bears are off to the best start in school history, following up last year's NESCAC Championship and NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearance.
