Men’s Basketball Sweeps Conference Weekly Honors

NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. – The men's basketball team swept the Little East Conference weekly honors as Rahshjeem Benson (Boston, Mass.) was named Player of the Week, and Jahleel Moise (Brockton, Mass.) was named Rookie of the Week as announced by the conference office on Monday.

The Player of the Week honor marks the second of the year for Benson, while Moise earned his third Rookie of the Week honor.

For Benson he earned his Player of the Week accolade after dropping in 14 points and collecting a career-best 24 rebounds in last week's 66-59 conference win over the University of Southern Maine.  His 24 boards was just one shy of tying the single-game record set in 1985 and helped the Beacons end a three-game skid.  From the field he shot 42.9% (6-for-14) and he also managed three assists and four blocks.

Moise also finished last week's victory with 14 points.  From the floor he was 6-for-10 including one 3-pointer.  He also managed three boards in the huge conference victory.
