The senior guard has been stellar from day one of the 2012-13 season and she's making her mark on the all-time America East scoring list. Alford came into the season 50th all-time in the conference with 1,309 points. After netting 208 points in her first 11 games, Alford has moved all the way up to 32nd all-time with 1,517 points. While the top ten is likely out of reach, Alford has a legitimate chance to climb all the way up to number 11 on the list. If she holds her average of 18.9 points over the final 18 games, Alford would finish her career with 1,857 points, which would be good for 11th. Alford is also on pace for a top-five single season in three-pointers made. The all-time record is 109.
Brenton recently became the Seawolves all-time leading rebounder, but he is also threatening to become a top 10 all-time rebounder in conference history. The senior came into the season with 836 rebounds, which was good for 18th in America East history. With 74 boards so far in 2012-13, Brenton has climbed all the way to 910 rebounds which is 11th all time. Currently Brenton is third in the conference with 8.2 boards per game. If he keeps up this pace over his final 20 games, he has a chance to not only break into the top 10, but also to become just the eighth player in conference history to reach 1,000 boards in a career. Getting to that number wouldn't be far fetched either, as Brenton averaged 8.1 rebounds just a season ago.
