Iona's Sean Armand has been selected as the StatSheet MAAC Player of the Week for the week ending January 14th. T.J. Cline from Niagara has won StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week.
Armand finished first in the MAAC in scoring (25.5 pts per game) and three pointers (6.0 per game). He also registered great stats in shooting (50%), rebounding (6 per game), and assists (3 per game). The Iona junior put these numbers up in wins versus Marist and Canisius.
Armand posted 19 points and 7 rebounds in 36 minutes in a close 86-82 win against Marist. That was followed by a team-leading 32 points plus an additional 2 blocked shots in a 97-87 win over Canisius.
This is the first StatSheet MAAC Player of the Week award for Sean Armand. However, he has received an honorable mention. The runner-up this week is Billy Baron, a junior from Canisius. Honorable mention goes to Iona senior Lamont Jones. The highest ranking player from Siena was O.D Anosike who finished sixth.
StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week: Niagara's T.J. Cline
T.J. Cline averaged 17 minutes while starting all 3 games for Niagara. In a 75-74 loss to Brown, Cline contributed 5 points and 5 rebounds. Following that in a 77-58 win against St. Peter's, he dialed up 7 points and 10 rebounds. And closing it out with a slim 67-64 win versus Fairfield, Cline racked up 12 points on 83% shooting.
This is a repeat honor for T.J. Cline, making it the second time he has won StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week. The runner-up is our own Brett Bisping. Tahjere McCall from Niagara receives honorable mention. Siena players have not yet been named StatSheet MAAC Player of the Week this season.
