NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Notre Dame women's basketball junior guard Natalie Novosel (Lexington, Ky./Lexington Catholic) has been named to this week's BIG EAST Conference Honor Roll, the league office announced Monday. The Fighting Irish wing was one of five players tapped for the award, which recognizes outstanding weekly achievements by conference players who are not chosen as the BIG EAST Player of the Week.

Novosel was selected as the Most Valuable Player of the 2010 Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Classic last weekend after averaging 18.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.7 steals and 2.3 assists per game with a .533 field goal percentage (16-of-30), a .385 three-point percentage (5-of-13) and an .818 free throw percentage (18-of-22) while leading Notre Dame to wins over IUPUI, Wake Forest and Butler at Purcell Pavilion and the tournament championship.

Novosel scored better than 20 points in two of the three Fighting Irish victories, including a career-high 23 points (with a career-best 11-of-12 effort at the free throw line) in a 92-69 win over Wake Forest on Saturday. She currently leads Notre Dame (and is tied for fourth in the BIG EAST) in scoring this season at 17.0 ppg., while adding 4.1 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game.

The 16th-ranked Fighting Irish will return to the hardwood at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT Wednesday when they travel to Waco, Texas, to take on No. 2/3 Baylor at the Ferrell Center. The game can be heard live on the radio in the Michiana area on Pulse FM (96.9/92.1), as well as worldwide on the Internet at www.UND.com.
