VESTAL, N.Y. - Freshman forward Magnus Richards has been selected as the America East Men’s Basketball Rookie of the Week, the conference announced on Monday.

Richards produced season-highs of 12 points and seven rebounds in BU’s 69-63 loss to Radford on Saturday. He hit 5-of-6 field goals and made both his free throws in 28 solid minutes off the bench. Richards scored 10 of his points in the first half as the Bearcats staked out a nine-point lead at intermission.

He is the second Binghamton freshman to earn the conference’s weekly rookie honors, joining frontcourt mate Nick Madray (Nov. 11).

Binghamton (1-4) boards the team bus Monday evening to travel to Jersey City ahead of a Tuesday night test at St. Peter’s (1-3).
