PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College freshman women’s basketball player Jovana ‘Yoyo’ Nogic (Lisbon, Portugal) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll today [Feb. 22] for her performance last week in games vs. No. 21/19 DePaul and Marquette. During the two-game span, Nogic averaged 19.5 points and dished 4.0 assists per game, while shooting 60-percent from the field (15-25), and 53.8-percent from three-point range (7-13). It marks the first time Nogic has earned weekly honors from the league.

On Feb. 19, Nogic hit the 20-point plateau for the second time this season, and first time in BIG EAST Conference play, with 20 points vs. nationally-ranked DePaul. She shot a blistering 81.8-percent from the field (9-11), including 2-3 attempts from three-point territory. Nogic also added one rebound and one assist in 24 minutes of action off the bench.

Nogic followed with 19 points, seven assists and one steal vs. Marquette on Feb. 21. Her seven assists matched her career high, previously set against Monmouth on Nov. 28. Nogic hit 6-14 attempts from the field overall (.429), including a 5-10 showing from beyond the three-point arc (.500). Her five three-pointers marked her second-highest total of the season overall, and the most vs. a BIG EAST Conference opponent. Earlier this season, she knocked down six three-point buckets vs. Hartford on Nov. 25.

Nogic currently ranks second on the team in scoring (10.1 ppg) and assists (1.9 apg). She also is averaging 2.9 rebounds through 26 games. Providence wraps up the regular-season schedule this weekend against St. John’s (Feb. 26) and Seton Hall (Feb. 28).
