He connected on 13 of 20 field-goal attempts, including an 8-for-13 performance from 3-point range. For the week he averaged 26.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

Derek Helman
Led the Hornets to a 3-1 week, averaging 18.25 points. He shot 14-for-16 from 3-point land, and was 16-for-17 from the charity stripe. He brought down 25 rebounds over the week and added nine assists, three blocks, and five steals.

Dan Flaherty
Dan led a young and coming Tufts team to upset wins against regionally ranked Amherst and nationally ranked Trinity in NESCAC action over the weekend. He scored 21 (9-for-11) with 16 boards in a 79-72 win against Amherst and followed with 23 and 13 in an 86-78 win against No. 19 Trinity.
