Weekly Honors (announced on Monday)
Choice Hotels Co-Players of the Week: F Kelly Beidler (Mount St. Mary's) and G James Johnson (Quinnipiac)
Beidler averaged 15.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.5 rebounds in wins over Monmouth and FDU last week, helping the Mountaineers move their win streak to six games. Johnson averaged 20 ppg last week as the Bobcats locked up at least one NEC Tournament home game with wins over SFNY and LIU.
America East: Stony Brook senior Muhammad El-Amin was named Player of the Week thanks to averages of 27.5 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in two wins for the Seawolves.
Pittsburgh started the season exceptionally, especially considering Maine Dixon's injury and Brown's suspension.
Much of that credit falls to Ashton Gibbs and Travon Woodall. Wannamaker has been incredible in the last few weeks, broadening his contributions to include slashing, running the floor, and improved on-ball defense.
Unfortunately, the Panthers have not collected a high profile win since January 2nd. Losses to Georgetown at the Pete and road losses to South Florida and Seton Hall hurt the most.
Which player has been the greatest Panther in 2009-2010?
Tonight's game between Saint Peter's and Loyola has been postponed due to the snowstorm that hit the Mid-Atlantic this week. The game has been rescheduled for February 17th at 7 PM.
Game of the Night: Siena at Niagara (8 PM, ESPN2)
With six games left in the regular season this is a big weekend for the NEC with spots three through ten separated by just two games. Robert Morris and Quinnipiac look to be the class of the NEC while Wagner and Bryant have an uphill climb to say the least in regards to simply making the tournament. The most important game on Thursday's schedule: Mount St. Mary's visiting Monmouth with both things in the thick of the NEC race for at the least a spot in the NEC Tournament.
