Fredericksburg, Va. – Junior captain Katie Robey (Kensington, Md./Georgetown Visitation Prep) became the third St. Mary's College of Maryland women's basketball player to be named Capital Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week this season as Robey earned the honor for the week of Feb. 12.
Robey was selected as the CAC Player of the Week after averaging 20.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 6.0 steals and 3.5 assists per game in a 2-0 week and helping to keep the Seahawks (8-14, 4-12 CAC) alive in the conference playoff chase. She shot 50% from the field (14-for-28) and 75% (9-for-12) from the free throw line in wins over Salisbury University and Southern Virginia University.
In a 61-58 victory against Salisbury on Wednesday, Robey poured in career-bests of 25 points, eight field goals (8-for-12), and seven free throws (7-for-8) as the Seahawks rallied for the win in the final 37 seconds. She scored seven points in the final five minutes of the second half, including a key defensive rebound and a pair of free throws with four ticks on the clock to seal the win.
At Southern Virginia on Saturday, Robey nearly posted a triple-double with 15 points, nine boards and a career-high eight steals to go along with three assists in a come-from-behind 67-65 victory. The 5-7 guard currently ranks fourth in the conference with 2.9 steals per game.
This week, St. Mary's looks to close out the regular season with two wins and hopefully lock up a playoff spot. The Seahawks hit the road on Valentine's Day to take on York College of Pennsylvania (15-8, 11-5 CAC) at 6:00 p.m. before hosting Penn State Harrisburg (6-17, 1-15 CAC) on Saturday at the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics & Recreation Center Arena for Play4Kay on Senior Day at 4:00 p.m.
