SPRINGFIELD, Mass.- Freshman David Lopez (Miami, Fla.) of the Eastern Nazarene College men's basketball team has been named the Commonwealth Coast Conference Rookie of the Week, as announced by the league office Monday.
Lopez turned in a career-performance in the Lions' hard-fought loss at UMass-Boston December 14.
The rookie notched his first collegiate double-double in the contest, pouring in a game-high 22 points and hauling in 11 boards off the bench.
He shot 9-for-16 from the floor and splashed a pair of three-pointers on four attempts while also converting 2-of-2 from the charity stripe.
Eastern Nazarene finished the first semester with a 3-6 overall record and will return to the court December 30 to host Lyndon State in a non-conference tune-up.
