Waugh Named to the All-Tournament Team


PHILADELPHIA --- Junior guard Amy Waugh (Fort Wayne, Ind./Homestead) was named to the 2002 Verizon Atlantic 10 Women’s Basketball All-Tournament Team following Monday’s Championship game that was won by Temple.

Waugh averaged 18.3 points and 6.0 assists over three games to lead the Musketeers (12-19) to their fifth straight semifinal appearance in the tournament. She shot 44.4 percent from the field and 48.1 percent from three point range for the weekend.

In the opening game of the Tournament, Waugh recorded her fifth career double-double with 15 points and 10 assists in Xavier’s 68-54 win over Rhode Island.

The Musketeers upset top-seeded George Washington in the quarterfinals behind Waugh’s A-10 Tournament record-tying seven three pointers. Waugh led Xavier with 23 points in the game.

In Sunday’s semifinal, Waugh scored 17 points and dished out six assists as Xavier, the two-time defending tournament champion, lost to Saint Joseph’s 90-80 in the semifinals.

Waugh was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Conference Second Team this season. In the regular season, she led the league in threes per game (2.07) and assist-turnover ratio (2.09), third in points per game (16.5), assists per game (6.26) and free throw percentage (.852), and was fourth in three point field goal percentage (.408).

Her 95 three pointers this season falls just five short of the school record set last season by Nicole Levandusky. Waugh’s 194 assists is the fourth-best single season in school history.

Temple defeated Saint Joseph’s 63-58 at TU’s Liacouras Center in the Atlantic 10 Championship Game on Monday. The Owls’ Stacey Smalls was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Championship. Waugh and Smalls were joined on the All-Tournament Team by Susan Moran and Stefanie Graff of Saint Joseph’s and Temple’s Lisa Jakubowicz.
