StatSheet's MAAC Player of the Week for January 7th goes to Niagara's Juan`ya Green. Iona's A.J. English has been recognized as StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week.

Green topped the MAAC in scoring (26.0 pts per game). He also put up respectable numbers with 3.5 rebounds per game, 70% shooting, and 4 assists per game. The Niagara sophomore played well for the Purple Eagles in victories versus Marist and Fairfield.

Green posted 21 points and 5 assists in 29 minutes in a big 94-72 win over Marist. He followed that up by leading the team in scoring with 31 points plus an additional 4 steals in a narrow 71-67 victory against Fairfield.

This is the first time that Juan`ya Green has been named the StatSheet MAAC Player of the Week. The runner-up this week is senior Lamont Jones from Iona. Honorable mention goes to Derek Needham, a senior from Fairfield. Rhamel Brown was the highest ranking player from Manhattan, finishing seventh.

StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week: Iona's A.J. English

A.J. English averaged 23 minutes starting all 3 games for Iona. His averages in scoring (9.33 pts per game), assists (1.67 per game), and blocked shots (1.33 per game) led all MAAC freshmen. In a 93-74 win over St. Bonaventure, English contributed 11 points on 80% shooting. Then in a thin 66-62 win against Siena, he added 11 points and 2 blocked shots. And closing it out with a 78-70 win versus Manhattan, English racked up 6 points and 2 blocked shots.

This is the second StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week honor for A.J. English. Josip Mikulic from Fairfield grabs runner-up. Honorable mention goes to our own Shane Richards. Manhattan has yet to win StatSheet MAAC Player of the Week.
