The Pirates have gotten off to a good start, with their only loss coming to Memphis in Puerto Rico. No final word as of yet on either Keon Lawrence or Melvyn Oliver from the NCAA, but they've done alright without much depth so far. Can they rack up enough wins to make the postseason?
Before getting into the team and player of the week honors in the metropolitan area, it's time to acknowledge area players who picked up some praise in their respective leagues.
Atlantic 10: Fordham freshman guard Jio Fontan was named Rookie of the Week after two exemplary games for the Rams. Fontan averaged 17.5 points and 5.5 assists in the two games, which included a career-high twenty-two in a 69-66 loss to Fairfield.
