Mount St. Mary's freshman point guard Jeremy Goode (Charlotte, N.C./Providence Day) has been named the Choice Hotels/Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week. It is the third time this season that Goode has earned the award.
Goode averaged 14.0 points, 6.0 assists and 5.5 rebounds while shooting 50.0 percent from the field in a pair of victories for the Mount. The 5-9 point guard is coming off a near triple-double of 18 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in the Mount's 74-65 win over Fairleigh Dickinson on Saturday. Goode opened his week with 10 points and three assists in the Mount's 80-70 win against Wagner.
For the season, Goode is averaging 10.9 points and 5.2 assists per game. He is second in the NEC in assists while his 109 assists on the season are the fourth-best single-season mark by a Mount freshman in school history.
The Mount has won three of the past four NEC Rookie of the Week awards with Goode winning two and Kelly Beidler one. For the year, Goode's three NEC Rookie of the Week nods are tied with Devin Sweetney (Saint Francis-Pa.) for the most this season. His three NEC Rookie of the Week awards are also tied for the second-most in one season by a Mount player. Chris McGuthrie won four in 1992-93 and Mychal Kearse three in 2003-04 for the Mount.
Mount St. Mary's heads to NEC leader Central Connecticut State on Thursday for a 7:00 p.m. game.
