Sports in a minute: NA's Lumb has huge family

LUMB’S HUGE FAMILY

North Andover’s Morgan Lumb, a freshman at the University of Harford, is fourth on the women’s basketball team in scoring, averaging 6.4 points per game. She’s tied for third with 3.5 rebounds per game. She has played in eight games, including making four starts and she is averaging 18.5 minutes per game.

If you log onto to the Hartford athletic website, there a video of each Hartford basketball player introducing herself and providing a fun fact.

Lumb’s fast fact is that she has 20 aunts and uncles and more than 50 cousins.

SOLANO HONORED

Merrimack’s Gelvis Solano was named Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Week.

He netted a career-high 35 points — 24 coming in the second half — in a 78-73 victory over Southern New Hampshire University.

The sophomore entered last night as the Northeast-10 leading scorer with 23.9 points per game.

UMASS LOWELL PRODUCT

Fangraphs.com reporter David Laurila, who works out of Boston, did an interesting Question and Answer with former UMass Lowell pitcher Jack Leathersich, who is pitching in the New York Mets organization.

The Q&A was posted on fangraphs.com yesterday so it’s easy to find.

Leathersich — who also is a Beverly High alum — was drafted by the Mets in the fifth round of the 2011 draft and spent this past summer pitching for Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Las Vegas.

He posted a 1.53 ERA in 29.1 innings in Double-A but then had a disappointing 7.76 ERA in 29.0 innings in Triple-A. He combined to walk 6.9 batters per nine innings between the two teams.

Laurila asked Leathersich about his control issues. Check it out.

VICTORINO HAS SURGERY

In case you missed it, Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino underwent successful nerve release surgery on his right thumb.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Thomas Graham in Cleveland, Ohio, and Victorino is expected to be ready to participate in spring training.
