Justin Rutty recorded two double-doubles this past week against Mount St. Mary’s on Jan. 29 and Long Island on Jan. 31, earning him WQAQ Athlete of the Week honors.  Rutty now has a streak of four consecutive double-double games.

Despite Rutty’s 12 points and 14 rebounds against the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers last Thursday, the Bobcats fell 60-42.

The story was different last Saturday when Rutty posted a similar 16 points and 14 rebounds against Blackbirds, this time in a Quinnipiac 69-63 victory.  The Bobcats bettered their record to 9-12 (5-6 NEC).

Rutty now had a conference leading nine double-doubles on the season.  He leads the NEC with a 62.7 field goal percentage, also good for eighth in the nation.
