Women’s basketball: ESPN names Katie Healy one of 10 players “rising to the occasion” #bonnies

Sophomore Katie Healy has been playing well this season, and ESPN made that national news recently. In a slideshow of 10 players who have helped their teams because of their high level of play, Healy finds herself as the fourth player on the list.You can check out the list here.

Healy finds herself among players from Connecticut, Oklahoma State, Michigan, among others. Another Atlantic 10 player (Erin Rooney) made the list as Rooney has led Fordham to a 9-2 record. Healy leads the Bonnies in points, assists and blocks. St. Bonaventure finished their nonconference schedule Dec. 22, as they beat UNC Greensboro 58-46. The Bonnies (11-4) open up A10 play on New Year’s Day at Duquesne.

The Intrepid will have a conference preview ready before that matchup. Once school opens back up, we will live-tweet home games and provide as much coverage as possible.
