Player of the Week
George Beamon, Manhattan, Sr., G/F, 6-4, 170, Roslyn, N.Y./Roslyn

Beamon averaged 24.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals per contest in the Jaspers' two games last week. He shot 64.0% (16-25) from the field and 81.3% (13-16) at the free throw line. After missing the first two games of the season with an injury, Beamon made a seamless transition back into the starting line up to lead Manhattan to its first victory of the year on Wednesday against Hofstra. He exploded for a game-high 29 points with 7 rebounds, while shooting 10-for-15 (66.7%) from the field and 7-for-10 (70%) at the free throw line. It was his 19th career 20+ point performance. Then on Saturday at Atlantic 10 power Dayton, the third 2012 postseason participant the Jaspers have met on the road this season, Beamon delivered his 50th straight double-digit scoring performance, finishing with a team-high 19 points. The Roslyn, N.Y. native shot 6-for-10 (60%) from the field and was a perfect 6-for-6 at the free-throw line. He grabbed 4 rebounds, handed out 3 assists and made 3 steals against the Flyers. Beamon advanced to 16th place on Manhattan's career scoring list last week with 1,258 points to date.


Rookie of the Week
T.J. Cline, Niagara, Fr., F, 6-8/220, Plano, Texas/Plano West

Cline had 11 points, six rebounds and three assists in his first-ever Little 3 rivalry game against St. Bonaventure on Saturday in the Purple Eagles' lone game last week. He set career highs in rebounds (six), assists (three), free throws (two) and in minutes (27) in the contest played in Rochester, N.Y. Cline's six rebounds tied a team high and he was one of four Purple Eagles in double figures scoring.
