Marcus LoVett has been named to the season’s first Big East Weekly Honor Roll after leading the Red Storm to victory in its season opener on Friday night, 77-61 over New Orleans at Carnesecca Arena,
The redshirt sophomore kicked off the campaign with a bang, as he scored a game-high 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting, including a 5-for-10 effort from beyond the arc.
The Fort Wayne, Ind., native also dished out three assists and surrendered no turnovers in 34 minutes of action.
In addition to his contributions on the offensive end, the unanimous Big East All-Freshman Team selection last season also matched a career-high with four steals.
