This is Rosen's first time winning the Player of the Week award in 2010-11; he was a first-team All-Ivy selection last season, the only non-senior to be so honored by the Ancient Eight coaches. For Cartwright, this Rookie of the Week award is his third already this season.
Rosen earned his honors with a scintillating second-half performance in Penn's 78-68 win at Delaware last Wednesday. The guard tied a career high with 30 points, but incredibly 26 of them came in the game's final 16:18. He went 7-of-11 from the field in the second half, including 3-of-4 from beyond the arc, and also dropped nine of his 12 free throw attempts in the second stanza. Rosen also had four rebounds, three assists and two steals in the win. He currently leads Penn and the Ivy League in scoring, averaging 16.9 ppg, and has dropped 70 points in Penn's last three games (20 vs. Army, 20 vs. Villanova, 30 at Delaware).
Cartwright also was honored for his efforts against Delaware -- making his first collegiate start, he scored 20 points and recorded two rebounds, two steals and an assist. Eight of Cartwright's points came in a personal first-half run that turned a 13-12 deficit into a 20-13 lead. Cartwright is third on the team in scoring, averaging 12.1 points per game, and also leads the Quakers with 15 steals.
Penn returns to action Wednesday night, facing Marist at 7:30 p.m. in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
