Three Boston College Athletes Capture All-league Weekly Honors
Three Boston College athletes -- men's basketball guard Duane Woodward (Queens, N.Y.), women's basketball guard Cal Bouchard (Aurora, Ontario) and hockey goalie Scott Clemmensen (Urbandale, Iowa) -- captured All-Conference honors for their performances for the week ending January 18.
Woodward earned BIG EAST Men's Basketball Co-Player of the Week honors; Bouchard captured BIG EAST Women's Basketball Player of the Week accolades; and Clemmensen earned HOCKEY EAST Rookie of the Week honors.
Woodward led the Eagles to two road victories, posting a triple-double at Rutgers and a double-double at Marquette. The senior became the fifth player in BIG EAST history to record double-digit totals in three statistical categories in a single game, finishing with 16 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds against the Scarlet Knights. He had 11 points and 11 assists in the team's win over 23rd-ranked Marquette.
Bouchard averaged 23.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists in the Eagles' 2-0 week. She netted 28 points, including six three-point field goals, in a win over Rutgers. The sophomore followed that effort with a 19-point, six-assist outing in a 78-76 win over Notre Dame. Bouchard scored the game-winning basketball against the Fighting Irish, converting a driving lay-up with five seconds remaining in the game. This honor marks the second time that Bouchard has earned the award this season.
Clemmensen captured Rookie of the Week honors after posting back-to-back shutouts in two wins over Providence College. The two shutouts, which followed Clemmensen's 17-save shutout of Maine the previous week, raised the freshman's time without allowing a goal to 241:34. He has now set the Boston College single-season mark with four shutouts, and tied the HOCKEY EAST record for league shutouts in one season (three). Undefeated in its last five games (3-0-2), Boston College is now in sole possession of first place in the league standings with an 8-4-2 record. This honors marks the second consecutive week and the third time this season that Clemmensen has earned this award.
