PSU Men’s Basketball sophomore named to Little East Conference Weekly Honor Roll

February 21st, 2005 by Adam

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – One of the stars of the Plymouth State University men’s basketball team was recognized by the Little East Conference Monday for his efforts on the hardwood last week with his selection to the LEC Weekly Honor Roll.

            Sophomore Andreas Pope (Brooklyn, N.Y.) was selected to the LEC Weekly Honor Roll for his performance in a pair of Panther losses last week.  The power forward has been honored four times this season by the LEC, including the Player of the Week recognition in November.


A 6’1” forward, Pope averaged 23.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists for PSU last week, connecting on 59 percent from the field. He made 10-of-14 baskets to finish with 23 points and nine rebounds in a setback at Southern Maine, and converted 10-of-20 to end up with 24 points, 12 boards and six assists in a key loss at Western Connecticut. He also collected three blocked shots and three steals for the week.

Pope is a strong candidate for All-LEC honors this season. He is second in the conference in scoring (19.7 points per game) and field goal percentage (.614) and leads the Little East in rebounding (10.4 per game). Pope is also tied for fourth in the LEC in assists (3.7 per game), sixth in blocked shots (1.2 per game), seventh in steals (1.7 per game) and eighth in free throw percentage (.745)

            The LEC Tournament is slated for this week, with first-round games set for Tuesday night.  The third-seeded Panther men will host sixth-seeded UMass Boston at 7:00 p.m. at Foley Gymnasium.  The PSU women’s team is the sixth seed, and travels to third-seeded Keene State Tuesday for its first-round contest (5:30 p.m.)

            The men’s and women’s Little East Conference Tournament champions receive automatic bids into the NCAA Division III National Championship Tournaments.
