Lion of the Week
Maya Savino (#3), is a senior guard on the Emerson Women's Basketball team.
Savino has played a pivotal role on the hardwood in the Lions' success in its first pair of NEWMAC victories over Wellesley and Smith to start off 2018. Through the last two contests, the senior has drained 7-of-12 from the floor, including 6-of-9 behind the three-point line and 8-of-9 on the charity stripe with a combined 28 points, six rebounds, nine assists and three steals. Racking up double-figures in her last two games, Savino's 15 points against Wellesley was a career-best with all 15 points coming from beyond the arc, going 5-for-6.
Putting up a 45.7 three-point percentage through 12 games currently ranks the senior fifth within the NEWMAC.
