LEC honor for PSU Men’s Basketball freshman

Morgan named Rookie of the Week for Panthers

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – One of the freshmen on the Plymouth State University men's basketball team was honored Monday with a top weekly honor from the Little East Conference (LEC).


            Freshman guard Shomari Morgan was named Little East Rookie of the Week for the Panthers.  He was recognized for his efforts in PSU's 93-91 setback last Tuesday in the home opener vs. Castleton State College.

            A 6'1" guard, Morgan scored 18 points and pulled in five rebounds off the bench as PSU suffered a two-point loss to the Spartans.  He converted 8-of-14 shots from the field, including his only three-point attempt, while also handing out two assists in his 22 minutes of action.  Morgan is averaging 8.8 points in PSU's first four games, while shooting 53.3 percent from the field.

            The Panthers, 2-2 overall, are home for a pair of games this week – Thursday in a non-conference affair against Salem State University and Saturday in the LEC opener against preseason favorite Rhode Island College.
