WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - William and Mary women’s basketball senior Janine Aldridge was named the Hampton Roads Sports Commission Women’s Basketball Defensive Player of the Year at the HRSC’s annual banquet held earlier in the week.
Aldridge, who garnered All-CAA Defensive Team honors in 2012-13, earns the distinction after averaging 2.7 steals per game this season, which were tops in the CAA. Furthermore, the Massapequa, N.Y., became the Tribe’s all-time leader in steals (260) as she eclipsed the old standard after registering five thefts in her final game at Kaplan Arena against George Mason on March 6.
As W&M’s all-time leader games played (128), Aldridge capped an impressive career ranking first in school history in steals and career 3-pointers made (304). The latter stands fifth all-time in the CAA record books.
