UVM needs to take this game very seriously, and hopefully they will.Senior forward Chris Lester of New Hampshire is this week’s America East Player of the Week. He came up big for the Wildcats in their win vs Stony Brook as he came off the bench to score a career-high 22 points. He got 16 of those points in the first half as UNH put on an offensive show in front of the home crowd by jumping out to a 21-point advantage. Lester shot 62% from the field (8-of-13) and also had three rebounds and a pair of assists. This is Lester’s first career weekly award.
I had heard last week that people were optimistic about his recovery, but I thought we might still be another game or so away. Good news, even if it's only for limited minutes.tweet from Jon Rothstein 2 hours ago:
