For the second-consecutive year, a Fordham Women’s Basketball star has been named Atlantic 10 Player of the Year.

Sophomore guard Anna DeWolfe has been named the conference’s Co-Player of the Year for the 2020-21 seasonBryson Cavanaugh won the award last season.

DeWolfe, who is the 15th-leading scorer in the country with 22.1 points per game, will share the award with Rhode Island’s Emmanuelle Tahane, who finished the year averaging 15 points and just over 10 rebounds per game. Both players have led their teams to excellent seasons: Fordham will hold the No. 2 seed at this week’s Atlantic 10 tournament, while Rhode Island will be the No. 4 seed.

DeWolfe’s production and development have come after a freshman year in which she averaged over 12 points per game and showed impressive poise. Still, her progression has been impressive even by those high standards; DeWolfe was named a preseason third-team player.

Now, the task for Fordham moves to winning the Atlantic 10 tournament. Fordham’s title quest starts on Friday evening at 5 p.m., as the Rams await the winner of St. Joe’s and UMass on Thursday evening at 5 p.m.
