Preseason 1st-Team All-American Noel Hollingsworth earned the NEWMAC's first Player of the Week award this season after a stellar opening to his junior campaign (Hollingsworth is a senior academically but a junior eligibility wise).  The former Conference Player of the Year averaged 22 points and 10 rebounds over the last week, as the #10 Engineers went undefeated in their three games.

The 6'9" center from Utah is an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science major at MIT, and plans on staying another season to earn his master's and use his final year of eligibility.
