PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its weekly award winners in men's basketball, and for the second week in a row and the fourth time this season University of Pennsylvania freshman guard Antonio Woods has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week.
Woods had another solid Ivy League weekend, despite a pair of losses (at Brown and Yale). On Friday in Providence, he scored 15 points -- 11 of them in the second half -- as the Quakers nearly overcame a 19-point deficit to get as close as four before falling 75-69. Woods also had eight assists in the game, a season/career high. The next night, against the Ivy co-leader Bulldogs, Woods led Penn with 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting and dished off six of the Quakers' seven assists. For the weekend, Woods had a 2.80 assist/turnover ratio (14/5).
After playing the last two weekends on the road, Penn is at home for its final three games starting this weekend when Columbia and Cornell come to The Palestra. Friday's game with the Lions will air live on ESPN3/WatchESPN, while Saturday's game will be televised on the Ivy League Digital Network. Both games will tip off at 7 p.m.
