CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - New Hampshire senior Morgan Frame earned her first America East women's basketball Player of the Week honor of the season, while Albany freshman Shereesha Richards notched her fifth Rookie of the Week honor for the week ending Jan. 13, the conference office announced Monday.

Frame (Waterville, Maine) recorded her second double-double of the season with a team-high 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting, and game-high 12 rebounds to lift New Hampshire to its first America East conference win of the season, 63-62 vs. UMBC. Frame scored five of the team's initial 11 points as the Wildcats built its largest lead of the first half - five points - at 11-6. She entered halftime with 13 points (5-8 FGs; 3-4 FTs). In the second half, Frame scored one point and pulled down five rebounds during UNH's 10-2 run spanning nearly eight minutes that transformed a 52-47 deficit into a 57-54 lead the Wildcats would not relinquish. In 18 second-half minutes, Frame recorded seven points (3-3 FGs, 1-2 FTs), seven rebounds and two assists.

Richards (Oceanview, N.J.) earned her fifth Rookie of the Week honor, helping lead Albany to a 71-39 win over Maine in the team's first game at SEFCU Arena since Nov. 28. The freshman forward recorded 10 points, and was just short of a double-double with nine rebounds. Richards shot 50.0 percent (5-10) from the field, while also recording five steals and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench.
