Penn basketball's Darnell Foreman named Ivy Rookie of the Week


After helping the Quakers to their first two wins of the season, it is no surprise that freshman guard Darnell Foreman was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week on Monday.

In Penn’s win against Navy, Foreman notched nine points, two steals, and two blocks in 28 minutes of play.

Foreman followed up this impressive performance with 11 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and two steals against Binghamton, leading the team to a 79-70 victory.

This recognition makes Foreman the third young member of Penn’s basketball team to be awarded this title. He joins guard Antonio Woods and forward Mike Auger as freshmen receiving the honor.

Penn hosts Marist at the Palestra Tuesday night where they will attempt to win their third straight non-conference game for the first time since the 2006-2007 season.

After an impressive start to his rookie campaign, it looks like Foreman as well as his fellow freshman teammates are intent are bringing Penn basketball back to the top.
