Vasquez averaged 26.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 8.0 assists while leading the Terps to victories over Winston-Salem State and Florida Atlantic. For the week, the Caracas, Venezuela, native shot .583 (21-for-36) from the floor, including .600 (6-for-10) from behind the arc.

In earning the Player of the Week Award for the fifth time in his career, Vasquez had a double-double in Tuesday’s 98-55 win over Winston-Salem State with a season-high 27 points and 11 assists. The senior guard closed out the week with a 26-point, eight-rebound and five-assist effort in Maryland’s 72-59 victory over Florida Atlantic Sunday.

In earning the league’s rookie award for the second time this season, Scott was among five Hurricanes to score in double figures in last Monday’s 80-59 win over North Carolina A&T.

The New York freshman had 13 points, five rebounds and four assists in the 21-point win that extended Miami’s win streak to four straight. Scott is fifth in the ACC in assists-to-turnover ratio (2.07:1), eighth in assists (4.3) and tied for 10th in steals (1.5).
