2012-13 MBB Weekly Report
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - The Atlantic 10 Conference has named St. Bonaventure senior Eric Mosley its Men's Basketball Player of the Week and George Washington freshman Kevin Larsen the A-10 Rookie of the Week. The awards were announced Monday for games played during the week of Feb. 18 - Feb. 24.
Mosley scored the most points ever by a St. Bonaventure player in an Atlantic 10 Conference game as he tallied a career-high 39 against UMass on Wednesday. The 39 points - Mosley's second-straight 30-point performance - are tied for the most by an A-10 player in a game this year, equaling the mark set by Richmond's Darien Brothers on Jan. 19 against Charlotte. No Bonaventure player has scored more points than Mosley in a regulation 40-minute game since 1977. The guard from Louisville, Ky., then followed that performance up with a 16-point outing at Duquesne on Saturday, knocking down a pair of 3-pointers and issuing a team-high five assists.
Larsen averaged 12.0 points on 50 percent shooting, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists to help GW split its pair of conference games this past week. The forward from Copenhagen, Denmark, opened with a career-high 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting to lead GW to a 68-60 victory over Fordham on Wednesday. He then totaled nine points, six rebounds, three assists and two blocks at Saint Joseph's.
