University of Dayton freshman point guard Juwan Staten was named the Atlantic 10 co-Rookie of the week for his play during the week ending December 26. It is his third A-10 Rookie Award this season, the most of any player in the league.

He shared the honor with Fordham’s Branden Frazier.

Staten averaged 9.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists with a 4-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio while quarterbacking the Flyers to a pair of wins. He scored nine points and dished out nine assists with two turnovers in a win over Winthrop on Monday, December 20. In the cone-from-behind win at Seton Hall, he scored nine points with three assist and one turnover.

Staten’s three Rookie of the Week awards are the most by a Flyer since Chris Wright had four before fracturing a bone in his ankle six weeks into his freshman season. Staten is the first freshman to start at point guard for the Flyers since Edwin Young started the first 12 games of the 1996-97 season.

Dayton is 11-3 on the season.

Dayton Flyers freshman point guard Juwan Staten is one of 66 college basketball players, and one of just five freshman on the 2011 Bob Cousy Award candidate list. The list was announced by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The annual award, named for Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic Bob Cousy, recognizes college basketball’s top point guard.

Staten leads the Atlantic 10 and is ranked eighth nationally in assists, averaging 6.9 assists a game. He is also the national leader among all freshman, 1.8 assists ahead of Duke freshman Kyrie Irving’s 5.1. Staten, Irving, South Carolina’s Bruce Ellington, Kentucky’s Brandon Knight and Missouri’s Phil Pressey are the five freshman nominees.

Staten was the first Flyer freshman to start a season opener at point guard since Edwin Young started the first 12 games of the 1996-97 campaign. Staten is more than halfway to Dayton’s freshman record for assists in a season. Negele Knight had 128 assists in his freshman year (1985-86). He is third in the A-10 in assist-to-turnover ratio at 2.3.

A two-time Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week, Staten averages 8.3 points a game. His double-double of 10 points and 10 assists against Florida A&M on November 24 was the first point-assist double-double at Dayton in eight years.

The original list of candidates will be narrowed down to a final 20 by January 3rd, final 10 by February 3rd, and final five by March 3rd. A Hall of Fame appointed screening committee will be narrowing down the candidates from 20 to 10 to 5 prior to a Blue Ribbon Selection Committee evaluating the final five candidates and ultimately choosing the winner.

Both of the Hall of Fame committee’s are made up of top college basketball personnel including media members, head coaches, sports information directors and hall of famer members.

The winner of the 2011 Bob Cousy Award will be presented at the Hall of Fame’s Class Announcement on Monday April 4th in Houston as part of NCAA Final Four weekend.
