HOUSTON, Texas - Freshman guard Max Guercy won his league-high fourth Conference USA Freshman of the Week honor on Monday after tallying 19 points and five steals against Tulane in Rice's lone contest of the week. He was joined by Player of the Week Akeem Richmond from East Carolina as a weekly honoree.
Guercy broke a tie with three-time winners Danuel House (Houston) and James Woodard (Tulsa) to become the most decorated rookie in the league through 16 weeks of the season.
The Arleta, Calif. native sank 6-of-10 field goal attempts and 3-of-5 three-pointers to tie for the team scoring lead against the Green Wave. He added four free throws, three rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes of action.
The guard's five steals matched a season high as he first accomplished the feat against New Orleans last month.
Guercy ranks second on the team with 10.0 points per game and leads the Owls in three-point percentage (39.6). He ranks among the C-USA leaders in three-point accuracy and steals per game after starting all 26 of Rice's contests this season.
The Owls (5-21, 1-11) travel to SMU in search of a split in the season series on Wednesday. Tipoff from Moody Coliseum is set for 7 p.m. Rice then hosts UTEP on Saturday in a 1 p.m. contest.
