VESTAL, N.Y.—Freshman sensation Jordan Reed grabbed another weekly America East basketball award after putting up some staggering numbers during two games last week. Reed shared Rookie of the Week honors with Boston guard Maurice Watson, giving him five weekly nods, which ties for the most of any rookie in BU’s America East history (Dylan Talley had five during 2009-10).
Reed averaged 21.5 points and 13.5 rebounds during the week. He is coming off a huge 29-point, 17-rebound performance in Saturday’s narrow loss to Maine and continues to lead the America East in rebounding (9.2 rpg.).
Reed also ranks second in scoring (16.5 ppg.) and has a chance to become the first freshman in conference history to lead the league in both scoring and rebounding. He is currently just 0.3 points per game behind scoring leader Justin Edwards of Maine (16.8 ppg.). Reed also leads the league with 11 double-doubles (including three in a row).
On the national scene, Reed ranks 17th in the country in double-doubles and is fourth among freshmen in rebounding and eighth in scoring. He is the only player 6-foot-4 or smaller to be among the nation’s top-70 rebounders.
