St. Thomas Aquinas Men's Basketball player Jamar Sudan was named the East Coast Conference Rookie of the Week on Monday, following the Spartans 2-0 week on the hardwood.
Sudan averaged 14.5 points and 7 rebounds per game in the Spartans' wins over New York Institute of Technology and LIU Post last week. Jamar had 19 points to go along with 6 rebounds and 4 steals versus NYIT on Wednesday. The freshman forward from Chester, PA then recorded 10 points and 8 rebounds at LIU Post on Saturday. On the week, Sudan shot 73.3 percent (11-for-15) from the field, 66.6 percent (2-for-3) from three and 71.4 percent (5-for-7) from the free throw line.
The 23-6 Spartans are off until Saturday, February 24, when they close out the regular-season by hosting the University of the District of Columbia at Aquinas Hall. Senior Day festivities will be held before the approximately 3:00 pm tip, after the conclusion of the women's contest at 1:00. #3 regionally ranked St. Thomas Aquinas has clinched a berth in the ECC Tournament and will either host a first ground game on Wednesday, February 28 at Aquinas Hall, or earn a bye to the semi-finals at Roberts Wesleyan on Saturday, March 2. Opponents and times are to be determined.
