PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Providence College senior Rachel Barnes (Windsor, Conn.) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on December 26, for her performance the previous week against then-No. 19/23 Delaware and Clemson. It marks the first weekly league honor for Barnes since joining the Friars a year ago from Seward County Community College. She is the second Friar to earn BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll recognition this season, as fellow senior Teya Wright (Paterson, N.J.) was honored on December 5.
Barnes averaged 15.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal for the Friars in two games last week. She has scored double figures in the last three games for Providence. Last week, she led the Friars in the scoring column in both games the team played. She hit for 13 points against #19/23 Delaware on December 19 and 17 points against Clemson on December 22.
The Friars return to action on Wednesday, December 28 against Akron at 7:00 p.m. The game will be played in Akron, Ohio.
