RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Felician College true freshman Tim Massado (Wilmington, Del./St. Elizabeth) has been chosen as the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Men's Basketball Rookie of the Week for the period ending Nov. 24, the CACC announced today.
Felician was in action only once last week, a 91-77 CACC loss at Caldwell College on Nov. 20. Despite the setback, Massado came off the Golden Falcon bench to score 23 points in 25 minutes. The 5-foot-10, 165-pound guard shot 8 for 14 from the floor, including 5 of 8 from three-point range, and added two assists and two steals.
On the season, Massado has appeared in all six Felician contests. He is scoring a team-high 14.5 points per game while averaging 20.2 minutes. He is ninth in the CACC in three-point percentage, shooting 46.9 percent (15 for 32) from distance. Massado graduated from St. Elizabeth High of Wilmington, Del., in 2012 before attending a postgraduate year at Central Jersey Each One Teach One Academy in Somerset.
