Player of the Week

Amir Moss, UMaine-Farmington

(Junior, G - Portland, Maine)

Moss had a 67-point week, averaging 22.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 2.7 steals over three games. First, in a non-conference loss to a competitive Colby team, he tallied 26 points, seven rebounds, two assists and three steals. Over the weekend, Moss led the Beavers to two NAC wins at home, bringing their conference record to 4-0 early in the season. Against Northern Vermont-Johnson, he notched 21 points and added three rebounds and two assists, and followed up the next day with another 20-point game at Northern Vermont-Lyndon, where he also picked up three rebounds, three assists, and five steals. Moss was perfect (7-for-7) at the free throw line over the weekend, and leads the league in points per game.


Rookie of the Week 

Brett Cunningham, Husson

(Freshman, F - Harrah, Okla.)

Cunningham led the Eagles come-from-behind victory against Bates College (80-78) with a game-high 24 points. He also grabbed six rebounds, drained four 3-pointers, and handed out one assist. The win over Bates is the first for Husson since 2012, ending a seven-game losing streak against the Bobcats. Cunningham had eight points, five rebounds and two assists against the second tough opponent of the week, St. Joseph's College of Maine. The rookie averaged 16 points and 5.5 rebounds across the two non-conference games.
