Mike Rotando is LEC Men's Basketball Player of the Week

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Sophomore guard Mike Rotando (Point Pleasant Beach, NJ/Point Pleasant Beach HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Rotando has been named LEC Men's Basketball Player of the Week.

Rotando led all scorers with 30 points in the Corsairs' only game last week, an 86-83 overtime win at Johnson & Wales Tuesday evening. He made 10 of 17 shots from the field, four of six from three-point range, and all six of his free throws while adding three assists and a steal. He stole the ball and scored the winning basket with eight seconds remaining in overtime, then drew a foul after a turnover and made two free throws to account for the final margin.

"Mike had a great game," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Brian Baptiste. "He not only scored points, but he made steals and made plays down the stretch and in overtime to help us win the game."

The Corsairs are off for the holidays, returning to action when they host Regis January 2nd.
