Iona's David Laury has earned the StatSheet MAAC Player of the Week for the week ending January 21st. StatSheet's MAAC Freshman of the Week is Zedric Sadler from Rider. And last but not least, Manny Thomas from Marist is the StatSheet MAAC 6th Man of the Week.

Laury was tops in the MAAC in rebounding (15.5 per game) and blocked shots (4.0 per game). He also registered a strong showing in scoring (9.5 pts per game). The Iona sophomore played well in a win against Fairfield and a loss to Rider.

Laury led the Gaels in rebounding with 14 and added 5 blocked shots in an 84-73 win over Fairfield. He then added 10 points and 17 rebounds in a 67-62 loss to Rider.

This is the first StatSheet MAAC Player of the Week award for David Laury. However, he has come in second once. The runner-up this week is Fairfield senior Derek Needham. Honorable mention goes to junior Dylon Cormier from Loyola (MD).

StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week: Rider's Zedric Sadler

In a 66-54 win over St. Peter's, Sadler contributed 4 assists and 3 steals. Following that in close 67-62 win against Iona, he totaled 5 rebounds and 3 assists.

This is a new honor for Zedric Sadler, the first time he has won StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week. Marcus Gilbert from Fairfield gets runner-up. T.J. Cline from Niagara receives honorable mention. The highest ranking freshman from Manhattan was Shane Richards who finished 6th.

This is the first time this season that Manny Thomas has won the StatSheet MAAC 6th Man of the Week. Maurice Barrow, a junior forward from Fairfield, is runner up.
