Lindsay Stergio (Montville, Conn.) has been selected as the NEAC Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week after a tremendous start to her career for the Gallaudet University Bison.  The senior transfer helped the Bison open the season with a 2-1 record after posting three-game averages of 16 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.7 steals and 1 block in 29.7 minutes per contest, while also shooting 51 percent (18-for-35) from the field and 86 percent (12-for-14) from the free throw line in her first three career starts for Gallaudet.  Stergio posted game highs of 16 points, eight rebounds and two blocks in just 28 minutes of play in the Bison’s season-opening 69-29 win over Christendom Tuesday, while then going on to earn All-Tournament Team honors at Gallaudet’s Holiday Tournament this past weekend.  The six-foot forward opened the tournament with a team-high 10 points to go along with five boards and two steals in 21 minutes of action in a 57-33 victory over York (N.Y.) College Friday, and went on to record her first career double-double with a team-best 22 points and a game-high 17 rebounds in addition to three assists, a steal and a block in a 65-47 loss to Valley Forge Christian College Sunday in the championship game.
