Sophomore Shelbey Manthorpe helped guide the Seton Hall to a 2-0 start to the season with a strong performance over the weekend at the JMU Classic. Manthorpe earned the first BIG EAST Player of the Week Award of 2012 after posting a triple-double in the opener against Appalachian State, followed by a double-double against hosts James Madison in the Pirates' second match. Against the Mountaineers, the second-year setter registered 11 kills, 34 assists and 18 digs in a 3-1 SHU victory. Manthorpe, the only player in school history to record a triple-double, now has five in her career. After dropping the first set against JMU in the nightcap, the Merion Station native aided a Seton Hall rally with 44 assists and 13 digs to finish with her 12th consecutive double-double dating back to last season.
