RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Felician University men's basketball redshirt sophomore Terrell Spaulding (Paterson, N.J./Eastside) has been named to the Weekly Honor Roll of the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association (MBWA) Division II/III Player of the Week program. The recognition, announced on Tuesday, was for the period ending Feb. 12.
Spaulding was chosen from among the 53 NCAA Division II and III basketball-playing institutions in the New York City metropolitan area. More information is available at http://www.metbasketballwriters.org/news/2017/2/13/MBB_0213174758.aspx?path=mbball.
Spaulding, a 6-foot-3 forward, turned in 25.5 points and 14.0 rebounds per game during a 1-1 week for Felician (10-15). He shot 50 percent from the floor and went 8 for 9 at the foul line for the week.
