Rookie of the Week Again for Molloy’s Corbett
By Kelly Thompson, Director of Athletic Communications
Freshman Nick Corbett (Staten Island, N.Y.) was named Rookie of the Week by the East Coast Conference, announced Tuesday (Jan. 3). This is the second time that Corbett has been named Rookie of the Week this season.
In the Lions' only contest this week, the freshman helped lead Molloy to a 70-68 win over Assumption College on Dec. 30. Corbett tallied 12 points, including shooting nearly 60% from the field, while adding five rebounds, three assists, and three steals. The Staten Island native landed a crucial basket with one second on the clock to tie the score at the half and made all four of his shots at the foul line to help the maroon and white bring home the win.
