Ike Azotam Named Choice Hotels NEC Co-Rookie of the Week

HAMDEN, Conn. - Quinnipiac University freshman men's basketball forward Ike Azotam (Boston, Mass.) has been named the Choice Hotels Northeast Conference Co-Rookie of the Week, as announced by the league office today. Azotam scored a game-high 15 points on 7-for-7 shooting and added seven rebounds in the Bobcats' 69-52 victory at Dartmouth on Tuesday.
