Barnett Named NEC Rookie of the Week for Third Time

FAIRFIELD, Conn - Freshman forward De'Von Barnett (Waldorf, MD) has been named this week's Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week. This is the third Rookie of the Week honor for Barnett this season.

The 6'4'' wing followed up that performance with a team-high 18 points on Saturday against CCSU.

Barnett finished the season averaging 11.0 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.
