Jalen Jenkins has been named the A-10 Rookie of the Week.

The redshirt freshman had a big week, as he moved into the starting lineup and responded by averaging 15.0 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 3.0 steals per game in the losses to VCU and Saint Joseph’s. The forward shot 61.1% from the field last week to open Atlantic 10 conference play, while setting new career highs in points (20, vs SJU), rebounds (12, at VCU), steals (five, vs SJU), and minutes (33, vs SJU).

Jenkins has put himself on the map as an impact freshman in the A-10, and has an opportunity to bring consistency to a very inconsistent area of the Patriots’ rotation.
