Bobcat of the Week of Dec. 3, 2012: Allie Beaulieu ’13
Bates senior Allie Beaulieu led the Bobcat women’s basketball team in a busy 2-2 week in nearly every major statistical category: scoring (14.0 points per game), field goal percentage (.408), rebounding (6.8), assists (3.8) and blocked shots (1.5). Along the way, the 5-foot-9 guard had a career-high four blocks against Rensselaer on Saturday at the Williams Holiday Classic, and her career-high 10 rebounds against UMaine-Farmington on Wednesday propelled her first double-double.
But it was in Bates’ first game of the week, an 88-43 romp at Husson, in which Beaulieu made team history. she drained 5-of-7 three-point field goal attempts en route to setting Bates’ career mark in 3-pointers. Her fifth trey of the night was the 151st of her career, eclipsing the former record of 150 set by Lauren Dubois ’04. By the end of the week, Beaulieu was up to 157.
Beaulieu (Swampscott, Mass.) was also one of several team members who logged heavy minutes as the Bobcats continue to negotiate a spate of injuries that have shortened their rotation. She played 32 minutes at Husson, all 40 against UMaine-Farmington, 38 against Bridgewater State and 40 more against Rensselaer.
