The Arleta, Calif. native then passed out five of the team’s 12 assists on Saturday against East Carolina. He added nine points on 4-of-11 shooting with one three-pointer as well as two steals and a rebound.
Guercy originally won the award on Jan. 7 and then earned his second honor one week ago. On the week, he averaged 15.0 points, 4.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds on the week. He shot 55.0 percent from the field and 40 percent from downtown.
On the season, the rookie averages 9.7 points, 2.6 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game. He shoots 45.8 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from beyond the arc. He ranks in the league’s top 15 in four statistical categories, including seventh in three-point accuracy and eighth in free throw percentage (79.2 percent).
