David Laury from Iona has been selected for StatSheet's MAAC Player of the Week for January 21st. Rider's Zedric Sadler has won StatSheet MAAC Freshman of the Week. And last but not least, Marist's Manny Thomas has received StatSheet's MAAC 6th Man of the Week.
Laury led the entire MAAC in rebounding (15.5 per game) and blocked shots (4.0 per game). He also put up a solid output in scoring (9.5 pts per game). The Iona sophomore played well for the Gaels in a victory versus Fairfield and an unfortunate loss to Rider.
Laury led all rebounding for the Gaels with 14 while adding 5 blocked shots in an 84-73 win over Fairfield. He then added 10 points and 17 rebounds in a 67-62 loss to Rider.
This is the first time this season that David Laury has been selected StatSheet MAAC Player of the Week. However, he has finished second once. The runner-up this week is our own Derek Needham. Honorable mention goes to junior Dylon Cormier from Loyola (MD).
