Athlete of the Week: Chris De La Rosa, Menís Basketball
Dec. 13-19, 2010
Junior point guard Chris De La Rosa certainly did all he could this week to try to turn around UMBCís fortunes. He scored 18 points and added five assists in 38 minutes of action against American on Tuesday and was a one-man show at Morgan State on Saturday with a game-high 20 points and 11 assists. The double-double was the third of the season for the Washington Heights, N.Y., native and Siena transfer, and the 11 assists tied his career best. De La Rosa now has 228 helpers in his 41 games as a Retriever (5.56 per game); UMBC all-time assists leader Jay Greene averaged 5.60 per game in his 122-game tenure.
