Mayo Named CCC Player of the Week

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – After helping the Wentworth Institute of Technology men's basketball team to a 3-0 week, junior forward Derek Mayo (Casco, Maine) has been named the Commonwealth Coast Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week for games played between January 28-February 3.

Mayo averaged 19.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 2.0 steals per game while shooting 52.2 percent from the floor. He matched a career high when he scored 22 points (on 11-for-22 shooting) to go along with seven rebounds and five assists in an 83-76 , overtime win at Endicott last Tuesday and eclipsed his career high with 25 points in an 80-67 win over Nichols on Saturday. He had 11 points, four rebounds, three assists, and three steals in Thursday's 53-47 win over Western New England. Mayo shot better than 50 percent from the floor in all three games.

Starting all 21 of the Leopards' games this season, Mayo is averaging 13.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 2.0 steals per game. Wentworth is 14-7 overall and 10-4 in CCC play. The Leopards look to extend their win streak to a season-high six games when they travel to Salve Regina on Wednesday night.
