University of Albany's Logan Aronhalt & Luke Devlin Receive America East Weekly Basketball Awards - UAlbany Sports 2010

Cambridge, Mass. - University at Albany's Logan Aronhalt has been chosen America East Conference Player of the Week in men's basketball, as announced on Monday, Nov. 29 by the conference office. Freshman Luke Devlin was named the conference's rookie of the week.

Aronhalt, a 6-foot-3 guard from Zanesville, Ohio, averaged 22.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals in four games last week. He was named to the Legends Classic's Detroit Subregional all-tournament team after UAlbany won two of three games. Aronhalt scored 23 of his career-high 30 points in the second half in last Saturday's 75-65 win over Niagara. He became the first Great Dane to score 30-plus since Jason Siggers had 34 against Vermont on Jan. 13, 2007. He also netted 18 points in Sunday's 56-55 triumph over Bowling Green and helped his team rally from an eight-point deficit with 7:43 remaining. The sophomore also had 18 points in a double-overtime loss to Detroit, a team picked to finish behind Butler in the Horizon League's preseason poll.

Aronhalt extended his double-figure scoring streak to 11 straight games, dating back to last year. He is second among America East's leading scorers with a 19.5 average.

Devlin, a 6-foot-8 forward from Sydney, Australia, contributed 6.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in four games last week. He recorded his first career double-double by scoring 12 points and pulling down 10 rebounds against Detroit. After being sidelined in the first half against Niagara when he took an elbow to the face, Devlin came back the next day to total eight points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in the one-point decision against Bowling Green. A starter in all eight games this season, Devlin is scoring at a 5.9 clip while collecting a team-best 6.0 rebounds.
