This week’s WQAQ Athlete of the Week award goes to Justin Rutty.
Rutty, a junior from Newburgh, N.Y., had a monster double-double, scoring 26 points while ripping down 14 boards in a 75-62 win against NEC foe Central Connecticut State. Rutty was in the zone for the entire game, continuously torching the Blue Devils while converting 13 of his 16 field goals.
Quinnipiac next hits the road for a three game road trip, starting with a game at Wagner on Thursday.
