As of Dec. 9, Binghamton's Jordan Reed was fourth among freshman in the country at 18.3 points per game and second among first-years in rebounding at 10 per contest. Those numbers have dropped a bit after the Bearcats' game on Tuesday, but Reed is still averaging 17.4 ppg and 9.8 rpg.
Boston U. is shooting 50 percent from the field over its last four games. The Terriers are 3-1 over that span.

Maine is leading the conference with 13.8 assists per game as a team, and much of that comes from Xavier Pollard, who has 41 assists on the year. In Maine's three wins, Pollard averaged seven assists per game, up from his overall average of 4.6 apg.
Though UMBC won't play this weekend, Ryan Cook is just four points shy of becoming the first America East player to reach 200 points this season. Cook is averaging 17.8 points per contest.

Stony Brook freshman Jameel Warney is shooting a cool 61.5 percent from the field this year, the second best mark in the conference and easily best among freshman. Warney is also averaging 12.8 points per game over his last five games.
After reaching double figures just once in his first six games, senior Trey Blue has reached that benchmark in three consecutive games for Vermont. The senior transfer is heating up as the conference slate approaches.
