PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – You would be hard-pressed to find a women’s basketball player having a better first season on the floor than Philadelphia University redshirt freshman center Tori Arnao.
An Archbishop Wood product, Arnao is averaging a double-double for the 12-12 Lady Rams, 11.3 points and 12.3 rebounds. That rebounding number has her ranked fifth in the nation in Division II.
Arnao says the scope of her success this season has even exceeded her expectations.
“I knew as a freshman I was going to help out, make a contribution,” Arnao tells KYW Newsradio. “I didn’t know my contributions were going to be this high. It’s a great accomplishment, I’m glad I’m able to help the team out in any aspect I can.”
