Junior Noel Hollingsworth earned his third, and MIT's sixth, NEWMAC Player of the Week award for his dominating performances last week. The 6'9" All-American averaged 18.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks while shooting a commanding 61% from the field.

Hollingsworth is 12 points shy of the 1,000-point mark, a feat that could be reached this Wednesday at Wheaton along with Jamie Karraker (who is 13 points away from the milestone).
