KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island freshman Josh Brodeur has collected Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week honors, announced Monday by the conference office. The weekly A-10 award is the first for URI this season.
A native of Cumberland, R.I., Brodeur hit a team-best .375 in the Rams' three-game series at No. 1 Florida this past week, and led Rhode Island was a .444 on-base percentage. The Rhody rookie also stole the first base of his career and was perfect defensively, recording five assists and four putouts at second base.
