Goodwin Named A-10 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week; Mason’s Kolek Wins Rookie Award

The Atlantic 10 Conference has named Saint Louis senior Jordan Goodwin A-10 Player of the Week. George Mason freshman Tyler Kolek was selected as the league’s Rookie of the Week. The awards were announced Monday and are for games played Dec. 21-27.

Goodwin registered another double-double in the Billikens’ lone game of the week against Kansas City. The guard from Centreville, Ill., turned in 23 points and pulled down 13 rebounds against the Roos, both game highs. Goodwin also added two assists and a steal in the win, while shooting 53.8 percent (7-of-13 from the field) and 9-of-11 (.818) at the line. He has a double-double in seven of the Billikens’ eight games so far this season and he leads the A-10 in rebounding.
