Donohue, who's started all 12 games to date during her freshman campaign, is averaging 8.3 points per game. She ranks third in the MAAC shooting 55.6% from the floor and ninth in rebounding averaging 6.3 caroms. In conference play, Donohue is averaging a double-double at 12.7 points and 10.7 rebounds per game.
