USF Forward Chris Perry Named AAC Rookie Of The Week

TAMPA, Fla. – Chris Perry scored the most points by a USF freshman in a season-opener since 2006 on Saturday and was named American Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week.

Perry’s 14 points in USF’s 72-62 win over Tennessee Tech was the most since Solomon Bozeman scored 23 points in a 77-61 win over Buffalo on Nov. 13, 2006. The 6-foot-8 inch forward/center was 7-of-10 from the field and also added seven rebounds, two blocks and two steals in 27 minutes off the bench.

“He’s really talented,” said USF head coach Stan Heath. “He’s just scratching the surface. He’s so effective around the basket. As time goes on I think he’s going to be one of the better post players that you’ll find.”

It was the first regular season conference awards given by the new conference. The American Athletic Conference Player of the Week was awarded to junior Kadeem Jack of Rutgers who scored 30 points in a 92-84 win over Florida A&M.

Perry and the 1-0 Bulls host Bethune-Cookman on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
