Westport’s John Baumann has earned Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors for games ending Sunday, according to the Web site collegesports.com.
Baumann led his Columbia University basketball team in scoring this weekend, averaging 15.5 points per game and four rebounds per game in just over 20 minutes per contest. The 2004 Staples grad shot 13-of-16 from the floor for a blistering .813 percentage.
He totaled 14 points in 24 minutes vs. Princeton and finished with 17 points in 17 minutes vs. Penn. Baumann has now scored in double-figures in three consecutive contests. In each of the three, he established new career-highs, with 17 points vs. Penn being his best yet.
This is the first weekly honor for Baumann, but the fourth for a Columbia rookie this season. Columbia plays its final two games this weekend, when they travel to Brown on Friday and Yale on Saturday.
