Siena point guard Marquis Wright was named the MAAC Rookie of the Week for the second time today following a pair of impressive performances on the road against two of the MAAC’s first place teams, Manhattan and Iona. Wright averaged 11.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists over the two games.
The 2013 Gatorade Maryland Boys Basketball Player of the Year from North Point H.S (Waldorf, Md.), Wright has been solid all year for the Saints. He continues to lead the MAAC in both assists (5.8) and steals (2.1). He ranks 24th in the nation overall in assists per game and is number 1 overall in that category for true freshmen.
