Penn basketball's Sam Jones named Ivy Rookie of the Week


The awards just keep rolling in for Penn basketball's freshmen.

Freshman guard Sam Jones was named Ivy Rookie of the Week this week, becoming the fourth member of the program to achieve the honor thus far this season.

Fellow freshmen Antonio Woods, Mike Auger and Darnell Foreman already have the award under their belts in their young careers.

The sharp-shooting Jones earned the award after absolutely going off in Penn’s recent victory over Marist. In that contest, he went 7-of-10 from the field and 5-of-6 from three-point range to drop 19 points.

The Red and Blue are riding a three-game winning streak, and they largely have their freshmen to thank for that. Jones and the rest of the rookies will have their next chance to impress next Monday against Vanderbilt.
