Hampton’s Jermaine Marrow has been named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference co-men’s basketball Player of the Week.
The 6-1 sophomore guard from Newport News, VA averaged 17.3 points, 6.7 assists, and 2 steals last week, leading the team to 2-1 record.
Marrow was named to the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational All-Tournament team after he had 19 points, 8 assists, and 4 steals in the team’s 76-66 Nov. 23 win over Northern Arizona; and 19 points and 7 assists the next day in a 94-80 loss to Rider.
He finished up his spectacular week with 15 points and 5 assists in a 72-56 victory over St. Leo on Monday.
On the season, Marrow leads the Pirates in scoring and assists, averaging 20 points and 6 dimes.
Marrow, who said he models his game after smaller point guards like the Blazers’ Damian Lillard and Maryland’s Melo Trimble, is relentless on the court.
“I want to show every game that I’m one of the best players on the court,” Marrow told the Daily Press. “After the game, they’re going to be like: That little guy can play.”
A prep star at Heritage High School (Newport News, VA), Marrow averaged a whopping 31 points and 7 assists as a senior when he was named the 4A East State Player of the Year.
North Carolina A&T’s Femi Olujobi, who leads the nation in scoring at 28.3 points per game, was named the MEAC co-Player of the Week with Marrow.
