Forney named A-10 rookie of the week

Charlotte 49ers freshman Jaquaria Forney, a 5-foot-9 guard who starred at Charlotte's Butler High, was named the Atlantic 10 Conference's women's basketball rookie of the week.

Forney averaged 8.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists, while shooting 44 percent (7-16) from the field as the 49ers went 1-1 last week.

The local Charlotte product recorded her first career double-double of 14 points and 14 rebounds in the 49ers' A-10 opener -- a double-overtime loss at Duquesne on Saturday.
