EDISON, NJ - Iona College men's basketball freshman A.J. English earned his second straight MAAC Rookie of the Week honor for his performance in the Gaels' 2-1 week.

English averaged 10.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists in contests vs. Liberty, La Salle and Norfolk State. He shot 50.0% (11-for-22) from the field and hit eight three-point field goals. 

The rookie guard matched his season-high with 17 points vs. Liberty while grabbing seven rebounds and dishing out three assists. English posted three steals against La Salle and scored eight points in 16 minutes in a 100-72 win over Norfolk State Sunday.

English is the first Iona player to win back-to-back Rookie of the Week honors since Scott Machado on Feb. 16 and Feb. 23, 2009. Machado won six rookie awards during the 2008-09 campaign.

Iona is back in action on Friday (Dec. 28) when they begin a three-game road trip at Saint Joseph's in Philadelphia.
