CENTERVILLE, Mass, - Junior Adam Kemp (Sherrill, N.Y.) continued raking in the accolades for his strong performances last week as he was recognized as the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division 1 Player of the Week on Tuesday.

Kemp had a breakout week of play for the Red Foxes in consecutive wins versus 2012 NCAA Tournament teams, Iona and Loyola. In the Red Foxes' 105-104 win on the road at Iona on Thursday, he became the first Division 1 player to register 29 points, 16 rebounds and seven blocks in a game since Rider's Jason Thompson went for 31 points, 16 rebounds, and seven blocks in January of 2007. Kemp book-ended his week with 23 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks against Loyola in the Red Foxes' 69-64 victory at home on Sunday. These back-to-back outings of 20+ points and 10+ rebounds were the first by a MAAC player during the 2012-13 season.

For the week, Kemp averaged 26.0 points, 14.5 rebounds and 4.5 blocks in 41.0 minutes of action per game, while shooting a sterling 70.8 percent (17-24) from the field.

This is the first career ECAC weekly honor for Kemp. This is the third award for the junior center on the week as he started off Monday with an acknowledgement by College Sports Madness as its Mid-Major Player of the Week and capped it off with the MAAC Player of the Week honor.

Kemp and the Red Foxes will be back in action on Friday, Feb. 15 when they host Niagara at McCann Arena. Tip-off for the game, which is slated to air live on ESPN3 is scheduled for 8 p.m.
