SOUTH EASTON, Mass. – Three Southern New Hampshire University student-athletes received weekly awards from the Northeast-10 Conference on Monday afternoon.  Senior Sam Carey (Manchester, NH) was named the men’s basketball Player of the Week, while senior Brandon Hammermeister (Calgary, ALB) and sophomore Shane Brooks (Kennebunk, ME) of the SNHU ice hockey team were named Player and Goaltender of the Week, respectively.

Junior Gerald Carter (Harlem, NY) of the men’s basketball team and sophomore John Frey (Westminster, CO) of the hockey team were named to their respective weekly honor rolls.

In two games last week, Carey averaged 30.5 points and nine rebounds per game while shooting .639 (23-36) from the floor in a pair of games.  In a setback to Le Moyne on Tuesday, Carey poured in a career-high 32 points and grabbed eight rebounds, then recorded a double-double (29 pts, 10 reb) in a game at Assumption Saturday.  It marks the third time this season Carey has been named Player of the Week.

Hammermeister, who was also named Player of the Week for the third time, totaled a goal and four assists in a 2-0 week for the Penmen.  In a 4-2 win over Stonehill Wednesday night, he handed out three assists.  In a 5-4 win over Franklin Pierce Saturday that assured SNHU home ice for its first NE-10 playoff game, Hammermeister recorded a goal and an assist, notching the game-winning goal with 1:53 left to break a 4-4 tie.

Brooks picked up a pair of wins between the pipes for SNHU last week, stopping 55 of the 61 shots he faced (.901 save percentage) in two games.  Brooks made 31 saves in a 4-2 win over Stonehill, then stopped 24 shots in the Franklin Pierce victory.  Brooks was named the league’s Goaltender of the Week for the third time.

Carter averaged 23.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and four assists in two games last week.  In a setback to Assumption, Carter poured in a career-high 29 points, going 4-7 from three-point land.  Frey finished last week with three goals in two games, scoring twice in the Stonehill victory then lighting the lamp once more against Franklin Pierce.
