Danielle Clark

Clark, a junior forward, leads the Wildcats with 14.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. She has scored in double figures 16 times this season, including five games of 20 or more points. Clark is presently fourth in America East in scoring, fourth in free throw percentage (.821), and fifth in three-point field goal percentage (.403).

Previously this season, Clark was named MVP of the Lehigh Christmas City Classic and America East Wilson Player of the Week after averaging 20.0 points and 7.5 rebounds per game in UNH's overtime victories over Towson and Lehigh. She was also named to the All-Tournament Team at the Wildcat Classic after averaging 18.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game against Cornell and Boston College.

Majoring in journalism, Clark was named to the America East Academic Honor Roll in 2004 and 2005. She has written news articles for The New Hampshire, UNH's student newspaper. This is the second consecutive year that a UNH women's basketball player has been voted First Team All-District, as Lindsay Adams (Theresa, N.Y.) earned the recognition last season.

Clark is joined on the All-District First Team by Brooke Queenan (Boston College), Brittany Keil (Holy Cross), Joy Gallagher (Wagner College), and Ann Strother (Connecticut). The members of the All-District First Team are now eligible for Academic All-America status, to be decided later this month.

The Academic All-America Teams program honors 816 male and female student-athletes annually who have succeeded at the highest level on the playing field and in the classroom. Individuals are selected through voting by CoSIDA, the College Sports Information Directors of America; a 2000-member organization consisting of sports public relations professionals for colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.
