Mid-Majors Madness Freshman of the Week: Marcel Pettway, Bryant

We don't have repeat winners very often at Mid-Major Madness, but when we do, they have truly excelled.

Marcel Pettway started this week with the same form as when he ended the last week. His 26 points against Central Connecticut State helped to earn him the Mid-Major Madness Freshman of the Week award.

Of course he would do it again. Pettway scored 26 points Monday night against Fairleigh Dickinson, going 9-for-10 from the floor and making 8 of 12 foul shots in an 85-80 win. He would add 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in the victory.

Three days later against Wagner, Pettway didn't have as good of a night on the offensive end, but contributed on the defensive end with nine rebounds, three blocks and two steals. Bryant would lose 65-56 for its first conference defeat.

Pettway came back well against Mount St. Mary's on Saturday. He finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and two assists. The Bulldogs would win 82-79 in two overtimes to move to 3-1 in the Northeast Conference, part of a five-way tie for first place.

For his sustained performance again this week, Marcel Pettway is our repeat winner of the Mid-Major Madness Freshman of the Week.
