SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Emmanuel College senior guard Madison McLaughlin (Westerly, R.I.) has been selected to participate in the 2019 New England Women's Basketball Association (NEWBA) Senior All-Star Classic, it was announced by the NEWBA Offices earlier this afternoon.
McLaughlin is one of only 23 seniors across New England that was chosen to play in the Senior All-Star Classic which will take place on Saturday, March 23 at Blake Arena on the Springfield College campus at 1:00 PM.
McLaughlin was named to the GNAC Third Team following one of the best shooting seasons in Emmanuel's program history. The sharp-shooter set a new Emmanuel single-season record with 76 three pointers, ranking second in the GNAC and 27th in the nation. She ranked second on the squad in scoring with 12.6 points per game, notching double-figures in 19 games including a career-high 36-point outing in the Saints' 79-67 win over Connecticut College when she drained eight threes, an Emmanuel single-game record. She also set the single-game assists record this season with 17 helpers in a win over Westfield State. The Rhode Island native was tabbed to the GNAC Weekly Honor Roll on two occasions and appeared on the EC Tip Off All-Tournament team to begin the year.
A four-year member of the program, McLaughlin played in 110 contests, starting 49. She will graduate as the program's all-time leader in three-point field goals with 196 triples and ranks fourth all-time in assists with 367 helpers. She finished her career just shy of 900 points while eclipsing the 200 rebounds and 150 steal markers.
