Senior Jamie Ruttle has been named to the preseason All-MAAC Third Team, the conference office announced today.
Ruttle, the 2011 MAAC Rookie of the Year, earns preseason All-MAAC accolades for the third consecutive season. The 6-foot-3 forward averaged 8.8 points per game last season and 4.7 rebounds. Ruttle scored in double figures 11 times and made 25 starts.
The Burlington, Ontario native enters the season with 882 points, the highest total by a Canisius post player entering her senior season since Anne Brocker in 1992-93 and the third-most by a Canisius post player in the Division I era.
Canisius opens the 2013-14 season on Friday, Nov. 8, in the Koessler Athletic Center when the Golden Griffins host the University of Detroit. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
