HADLEY, MA – Williams College first year forward Duncan Robinson (New Castle, NH) was named the NESCAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week for his role in two Eph wins.
The 6-7 sharpshooter averaged a double-double in the two wins, netting an average of 20 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists.
Against Curry he was the main ingredient in the Eph attack that blew open a 1-point game at the half and propelled the Williams to a 56-point second half outburst. Scoring seven of the Ephs' first nine points after intermission, Robinson went on to score 17 points in the second half.
Sunday in a 106-71 road win at MCLA Robinson tallied 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.
In the two games he made 5-11 three point shots and all five of his free throws.
Through the first six games of the season he is second on the team in minutes played, hitting 59% from the floor (36-61), 41.4% from 3-point land (12-29) and he has made 14 of 15 free throws (93.3%). He is averaging 16.3 points per game, which is second best on the Eph squad.
Robinson and his Eph teammates will be back on the court this Tuesday night at 7:00 PM when they host RPI in a 7:00 PM game in Chandler Gym.
