Freshman forward, Cebria Outlow, was named the NEC Rookie of the Week on Monday afternoon. The Norwich, Connecticut native made contributions coming off the bench in all three of Central Connecticut's games last week and ended the three-game span by turning in her best performance yet. The freshman small forward tallied a career-high 16 points, six rebounds and two steals against San Diego State in Sunday's consolation game at the Seton Hall Classic.
For the week, Outlow averaged 8.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game. The rookie was almost automatic from the free throw line, nailing 15 of 18 attempts (.833). She hit both free throw attempts and grabbed a pair of rebounds during 13 minutes of action in an overtime road loss to Big East member Seton Hall on Saturday. Outlow started the week by scoring eight points and securing four caroms on Wednesday in a setback at A-10 member Massachusetts.
Outlow and the Blue Devils return to action next Sunday, Dec. 4, with a road trip to Syracuse, NY, where they will take on the Syracuse Orange (4-2) for a 2:00 p.m. tipoff inside the Carrier Dome. The two teams last met on Dec. 30, 2014 at Syracuse, resulting in a Central, 74-43, loss. You can follow live stats here, and listen live here to Sunday's women's basketball action.
