Penn basketball's Antonio Woods named Ivy League Rookie of the Week


Earlier today, freshman guard Antonio Woods was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week after putting up 11 points against Delaware State on Saturday.

Coming off the bench in his collegiate debut, Woods played 36 minutes while also adding four rebounds and two assists.  The freshman figures to be a large part of the Quakers' gameplan moving forward.

Woods wasn't the only Penn basketball player to receive weekly honors though, as junior guard Tony Hicks earned Big Five Player of the Week recognition for his 31-point effort.  Hicks, one of the team's captains this year, will be looked on to carry a heavy offensive load all season and it was certainly apparent in the first game.

Hicks reinvented himself over the offseason, switching his jersey number to 11 because he chose number 1 for all the wrong reasons.

If you missed saturday's game, catch up with our recap and why sports editor Colin Henderson saw something old and something new out of the Quakers in their opener.

And in case you missed it, we're pretty outraged that the most stylish coach at Penn was left off of ESPN's ranking of best-dressed basketball coaches.  #JeromeAllenSuitWatch
