PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its weekly honors in men's basketball, and for the second time in as many weeks (and this season) Penn senior guard Zack Rosen has earned the conference's player of the week award.
Rosen enjoyed three superb performances last week, helping Penn go 2-1 which puts the Quakers at 3-1 overall. That is the program's best start since the 2005-06 season.
Rosen began the week with an incredible, 27-point performance against Temple. In that game he knocked down seven three-pointers, the most by a Penn player since Tim Begley hit eight in 2004. Three days later, Rosen spent the first half of the Red and Blue's game at Rider finding his teammates -- he didn't take a shot -- but after halftime he scored 19 points to help the Quakers beat the Broncs in overtime. On Saturday, Rosen had 19 points and 10 assists for his third career double-double asPenn defeated Robert Morris, 66-60.
The Penn men's basketball team is in action three times again this week, as they will play eight total in the month of November. The action starts at home Tuesday against Wagner (7 p.m. tipoff), then the Philly Hoop Group Classic comes to The Palestra on Friday and Saturday. The Quakers will face national power Pitt Friday at 7, capping a Palestra tripleheader, and then they meet James Madison Saturday at 7 to end a doubleheader.
