Nowak Named to Freedom First Team
Nowak, who led the Eagles in scoring and rebounding, helped the team to qualify for the Freedom Conference Tournament for the second time. As the focal point of the Eastern offense, Nowak averaged 16.4 points and 10.4 rebounds a contest. Despite missing significant time with injury this year, she has 925 career points and 493 career rebounds.
This year, Nowak finished fifth in the league in scoring, second in rebounds, and eighth in blocked shots. She scored a season-high 35 points at Rosemont in a season-opening win. She recorded 12 double-doubles and on four occasions grabbed 15 or more rebounds.
The Eagles fell at top-seeded FDU-Florham in the Freedom Conference Semifinals. Despite being saddled with foul trouble, Nowak made her last eight field goals to finish with 17 points.
Nowak is the first Eastern basketball player to earn 1st team honors in consecutive seasons since Eastern Hall of Honor member Andrea Collesidis earned 3 consecutive First Team All-PAC Honors between 1999-'00 and 2001-'02.
