GREENVILLE, N.C. – ECU freshman Necole Hope has been named to the American Athletic Conference Weekly Honor Roll, according to an announcement by the league office Monday afternoon.
The Waldorf, MD. Native scored a career-high 18 points, including the game-winning layup, in ECU’s 80-78 overtime victory at home against Houston on Saturday. Hope converted 7-of-9 field goals and 3-of-4 three-point attempts. The freshman also recorded a career-high four rebounds in the contest.
