Cresson, PA – Following an honor as AMCC Player of the Week on Monday, Shawn Greenfield (Upper Marlboro, MD/Northern) was named to the D3Hoops.com Team of the Week on Thursday afternoon for his outstanding performances in last week’s victories over Franciscan and D’Youville. The national honor places Mount Aloysius College’s Greenfield among the best of the best in NCAA Division III basketball.
Greenfield drained 30 points in a 92-72 win over Franciscan, shooting at 68.8 percent from the floor, 60 percent from behind the arc, and 100 percent from the line, while adding four steals on the defensive end. He followed that performance with 35 points in a Senior Day win versus D’Youville in front of a large contingent of family and friends. In a 95-72 win, he narrowly missed a triple-double with 10 rebounds and seven assists. On the week, Greenfield averaged 32.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 3.0 steals.
Mount Aloysius Athletic Director Ryan Smith applauded the D3Hoops.com choice of Greenfield on their Team of the Week. “Shawn Greenfield has been a great asset to the Mount Aloysius College Men’s basketball team this season. Undoubtedly an accomplished player, he was also a fine team member—unselfish and ready with an assist or a rebound as the situation dictated. It was a pleasure to see his family and friends travel up from Maryland for the game on Senior Day. They generously shared their great enthusiasm with the rest of the Mountie fans.”
“Shawn was stellar. He put up some impressive stats and is certainly deserving of this kind of national honor. I’m really proud of him,” Head Coach Lance Loya said.
On the season, Greenfield, a transfer from Division II Francis Marion University, broke the conference record for points per game and moved up to fourth in NCAA Division III in scoring average. In addition, Greenfield set a new program record for points per game in a single season. At the conclusion of the AMCC regular seasonon Saturday, Greenfield ranked first in the conference in points per game (26) and fourth in three-point percentage (44.6).
Greenfield is the first men’s basketball player in school history to be given this national honor. He carried the Mounties throughout the 2013-2014 campaign with his scoring prowess, enabling the team to stay in the conference playoff race up until the final day of the regular season. He notched 40-point games against both Penn State-Altoona and Medaille in January.
He was also extremely consistent as he reached the 20-point plateau in 18 of the Mounties final 19 contests.
The Team of the Week presented by Scoutware is D3hoops.com’s weekly honor roll, in its 17th season of recognizing the top performance at each of the five positions from the previous week.
