Jameel Warney is on the verge of cementing himself as one of the all-time greats at Stony Brook. He is 29 points away from 2,000 for his career, and is having a season that already rivals his sophomore year, when he was named Player of the Year in the America East Conference.
That run continued last week, as Warney helped the Seawolves extend their winning streak to 18 games with wins over Hartford, UMBC, and New Hampshire.
He started the week big against the Hawks, scoring 36 points on 16 of 18 shooting from the floor. He added 13 rebounds to notch his 17th double-double of the season. Seven of those rebounds came on the offensive end, adding to his impressive offensive rebounding percentage, which leads his conference and is 28th in the country.
He followed that with a 22-point performance against UMBC. That came on 9-for-12 shooting from the floor, and he added seven rebounds, and three blocks in the win.
Last, but certainly not least, Warney threw a block party against New Hampshire, including a swat at the buzzer that helped seal the win. He walked off the court with eight blocks, to go with 16 points and eight rebounds in the win.
For his impressive performances this week on both ends of the floor, Jameel Warney is our Mid-Major Madness Player of the Week.
