LOUDONVILLE — Siena men’s basketball sophomore Jalen Pickett was recognized as MAAC Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.
In wins against Iona and Fairfield, Pickett averaged 16 points, 7.5 rebounds and six assists. The Saints won both those games as part of their current five-game winning streak, the program’s longest such streak since 2010.
On the season, Pickett is averaging 15.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.2 blocks per game. Pickett has earned the league’s weekly honor as its top player three times this season.
Siena next plays Wednesday at Quinnipiac. The Saints are 11-5 in MAAC play, which leaves them a half-game behind first-place Saint Peter’s.
