The Tech’s Athlete of the Week: Kimberly E. Soo Hoo ’08

Women’s basketball senior captain Kimberly E. Soo Hoo ’08 set the Institute record for assists in a career after dishing out seven assists in MIT’s 59-49 victory over Mount Holyoke College on Saturday. The previous career record was 349.

In addition to her record-breaking performance, Soo Hoo scored eight points, going six for eight from the free-throw line and grabbing five rebounds.

After being down 30-20 at the half, the Engineers went on a 15-4 run to take the lead. Samia A. Mahjub G led the Engineers with 18 points and 11 rebounds, helping MIT outscore Mount Holyoke by 20 in the second half to earn their first conference win of the season.

Soo Hoo has led the team in assists in each of her first three years at MIT and is on pace to do so again this year. She looks to add to the record tonight as MIT hosts conference rival Wheaton College.
