Hartford Boasts Two Rookies of the Week
Hartford freshman Paris Carter was named America East Co-Rookie of the Week for men's basketball. He shared the honor with the University of Vermont's Mike Trimboli.

He scored a career-high 25 points in his return to his hometown of Baltimore, 21 of which came in the second half as the Hawks erased a 10-point deficit in the final four minutes.
Meanwhile, Hartford freshman Erica Beverly picked up her sixth America East Rookie of the Week honor on Monday. The six-foot forward from Bridgeport, Conn., averaged 11 points and 8 rebounds over two Hawks victories last week.
