OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – The College of New Rochelle sophomore center Jasmine Brandon (Jersey City, N.J.) has been awarded the Association of Division III Independents women's basketball Player of the Week. Brandon posted another strong offensive week in helping lead The College of New Rochelle to a pair of non-conference victories.

Brandon added a game-high 17 rebounds to raise her double-double total to nine on the season.
