In Sunday’s win against Niagara, Shaw extended that lead with another four triples to total 88 three-pointers made in 29 games played this year.
Shaw started the week with a 13-point outing at Rider on Tuesday, before scoring 18 points in the win at Manhattan on Friday. In Monmouth’s win over Niagara on Sunday, Shaw poured in 14 points to register her 18th game in double-figures this season, and third of the week. She drilled 12 threes in the three games, shooting 52.2% from deep. From the field, Shaw went 16-29 (55.2%) during the week.
