HOUSTON, Texas – For the second time in January, Rice University men’s basketball freshman point guard Max Guercy was honored as the Conference USA Freshman of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.
Guercy averaged 10.5 points, 6.0 assists and 1.5 steals on the week as he continues to lead the Owls in league play. He shot 7-of-19 from the field with three three-pointers in two games and added 2.0 rebounds per contest for Rice.
On Wednesday at UCF, the Arleta, Calif. native shot 3-of-7 from the field and 2-of-4 from downtown for 10 points. He added six assists, three rebounds and two steals to help the Owls compete against a strong Knights squad.
In the second road action of the week, Guercy tallied 11 points, six assists, one rebound and a steal at Tulane. In a season-high 39 minutes played, he did not commit any turnovers as the Owls attempted to rally late against the Green Wave.
For the season, the guard ranks third on the team with 9.2 points per game and, with 18 assists in his last three outings, has taken over the team lead with 46 assists. Guercy ranks among the league leaders with his 43.3 three-point accuracy as well as his 79.2 percent mark from the foul line.
Guercy’s first C-USA Freshman of the Week accolade came on January 7 after he posted numerous career highs at Harvard. UCF’s Isaiah Sykes was voted Player of the Week for Conference USA on Monday.
The Owls open a two-game homestand on Wednesday evening against Houston. Tipoff at Tudor Fieldhouse is set for 7 p.m. against the cross-town rival.
