Archies' Spencer commits to UMass-Lowell

Archbishop Williams junior guard Leah Spencer has verbally committed to UMass-Lowell for the 2014-15 season, she announced tonight in a post on her Twitter account.

"Officially committed to UMass Lowell!" she wrote in a tweet.

The 5-foot-7 Spencer, a Brockton resident, was an integral piece of the Bishops' run to their third MIAA Division 3 state championship in eight seasons, and a No. 1 ranking in ESPNBoston.com's final statewide poll of the 2012-13 season. The Bishops beat Lee, 60-33, in the state final, finishing off a six-game run through the state tournament in which they won by an average of 19.8 points.

Spencer is the second underclassman from this Archies squad to commit to a Division 1 school. Last July, 2015 center Jaylen Williams committed to Penn State.
