Eck, Fox Garner First Team All-NESCAC Selection

AMHERST, Mass. – For the third consecutive season, Hannah Fox '20 and Maddie Eck '20 have been named to the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women's basketball All-Conference team, as announced by the league office.

The NESCAC first team and second team honorees are voted on by the conference coaching staffs after the conference championship.

Her third-straight first team selection, Eck is one of only two Mammoths in program history that have capped the 1,500-point mark, a feat that was accomplished during their NCAA second round win over Rowan this past weekend.

Eck scored in double-figures in both games at the league tournament and creased the 20-point plateau on five separate occasions during the regular season. With a career shooting percentage of 47.5 and a three-point percentage of 31.1, Eck averages 14.4 points per game and 6.0 rebounds per game. 

Fox, a three-time honoree, is among the conference's best rebounding guards. The 2018 first team selection is fourth in the league for points per game and set the record for total points scored over four seasons at the classic (127). A 2018 D3Hoops All-American and two-time WBCA Honorable Mention All-America, Fox scored a season-best 30 points in a win over Eastern Connecticut State University and has scored above 20 points in seven contests during the regular season.

The Mammoths, who finished as a NESCAC semifinalist, earned an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the sweet 16 with wins over Framingham State (70-46) and Rowan (60-40).

Amherst will host the third and fourth round of the national tournament this weekend and are set to face George Fox at 7:00 p.m. on March 13.
