Kings Point, NY -- The Landmark Conference named United States Merchant Marine Academy senior captain Tamara Kaileh (Kings Park, NY) player of the week; recognizing her outstanding performances from Feb. 4-10.
In three games last week, Kaileh guided the Mariners to a 3-0 record, scoring double-figures in each contest. Her 24 points against Juniata set a career-high scoring mark and also helped Merchant Marine achieve their first ever victory against the Eagles.
Kaileh averaged just over 20 minutes per game, only turning the ball over four times in the three contests, while shooting 69.2% from the field over that span.
This marks the first time during the 2012-13 campaign a member of USMMA's women's basketball team has received a Player of the Week distinction from the conference.
The Mariners finish up their season with a trifecta of road mathups against Coast Guard, Drew, and Susquehanna.
