BALTIMORE, Md. - Courtney Doughman is adjusting to college basketball as quick as she moves toward the basket.

The Ironton native is a freshman for the University of Maryland Baltimore County women's basketball team. Despite her inexperience, Doughman was named by the America East as Wilson Rookie of the Week for the week ending Jan. 25.

Doughman had an outstanding week as she averaged 14.0 points per game en route to picking up the conference's weekly honors and became the first-ever UMBC women's basketball player to earn a conference weekly award.
