Co-Players of the Week
Sean Armand, Iona, Jr., G, 6-4, 200, Brooklyn, N.Y./CJEOTO Academy (NJ)/Jacqueline Onassis Junior

Armand led the Gaels to two MAAC wins this weekend to extend the team's winning streak to a season-long five games. Armand averaged 25.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in wins at Marist and vs. Canisius. He shot 51.4% (18-for-35) from the field and 54.5% (12-for-22) from beyond the arc. Against the Red Foxes, Armand scored 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds with three steals. He hit back-to-back three-point field goals to spark a 12-0 run that helped the Gaels erase an 11-point deficit in the second half. On Sunday, Armand matched his career-high with 32 points and set a Hynes Center record with nine three-point field goals in a win over the Golden Griffins. The third-year guard eclipsed 200 three-pointers for his career and became the second player in school history to reach the milestone. He averages a league-best 4.0 three-point field goals per game in 17 appearances this season.

Daniel Stewart, Rider, Jr., F, 6-7, 210, Philadelphia, Pa./Neumann-Goretti

In two MAAC wins last week, Stewart averaged 22.5 points and 12.0 rebounds for the Broncs. He connected on 65.2 percent of his attempts from the field (15-23) and 93.8 from the free throw line (15-16), en route to compiling his second and third double-doubles of the season. At Manhattan, Stewart grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds. Once Manhattan cut the lead to one, he scored the next five points to give Rider a 59-53 lead. Trailing 13-10, Rider outscored Manhattan, 10-0, with seven points by Stewart to take a 20-13 lead with 3:57 left in the first half.

Rookie of the Week
Shane Richards, Manhattan, Fr., F, 6-5, 185, New York, N.Y./York Prep

Richards averaged 14.5 points and buried 8 three-pointers in two games for the Jaspers last week. Richards exploded for a team-high 18 points on 6 three-pointers against Rider on Thursday. Richards shot 46.2% beyond the arc against the Broncs as he matched a career-high in scoring. Then on Sunday, the rookie from New York City delivered his second straight double-digit scoring performance posting 11 points to lift Manhattan to a 65-53 victory over Marist at Draddy Gymnasium. Richards shot 50% from the field, knocked down 2 three-pointers and shot a perfect 3-for-3 at the free-throw line. It was Richards' third double-digit scoring performance in the last four games.
