PSU Men’s Hoop player named to Little East Conference Weekly Honor Roll

January 15th, 2007 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – One of the senior captains on the Plymouth State University men’s basketball team was recognized by the Little East Conference Monday for his accomplishments in two Panther games last week.

Senior Devin Ruocco (Dover, N.H.) was named to the LEC Men’s Basketball Weekly Honor Roll after leading the Panthers in a pair of outings. This is the third time this season he has been honored by the LEC; he was previously on the Honor Roll in November and was selected LEC Player of the Week once in December.

A 6’4” forward, Ruocco (left) averaged 23.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in PSU’s 1-1 week while shooting 47 percent from three-point range. He scored a career-high 30 points in Tuesday’s overtime loss at defending champion UMass Boston, and followed with a team-high 17 points in Saturday’s last-second victory over Eastern Connecticut.

A reserve for three seasons prior to this year, Ruocco has enjoyed an outstanding campaign so far, starting 15 of PSU’s 16 games. He ranks third in the conference in scoring (15.8 points per game), 12th in rebounding (6.1 per game) and free throw percentage (72.7), and 15th in field goal percentage (47.1). A strong shooter, Ruocco is also second in the LEC in three-point field goal percentage (45.7) and three-point baskets made (3.0 per game).

Ruocco and the Panthers, 8-8 overall and 1-4 in conference play, play a pair of LEC road games this week, visiting Southern Maine on Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) and Western Connecticut on Saturday (3:00 p.m.)
