Berthiaume Named NEWMAC Men's Basketball Player of the Year

Berthiaume Named NEWMAC Men's Basketball Player of the Year Wellesley, Mass. - February 29, 2012 - Junior guard Alex Berthiaume was named the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Men's Basketball Player of the Year on Wednesday morning.

In addition to being named the conference's top player, Berthiaume was named to the NEWMAC All-Conference First Team.

In his first season for the Pride after transferring from St. Michael's, the Springfield, Mass. native proved to be one of the most dynamic offensive weapons in the region. He led the conference in both total points (519) and points per game (19.2) as he scored at least 20 points in 14 games while reaching the 30-point plateau three times.

Berthiaume also ranked second in the league in steals (43) and third in assists (92). He was also a very durable player for head coach Charlie Brock, as he led the league in minutes per game, logging 34.8 minutes of action per contest.

The junior played a major role in Springfield owning a 17-10 record this season and reaching NEWMAC Championship game.

This marks just the third time that a Springfield College men's basketball player was named the NEWMAC Player of the Year. Michael Parker earned the honor in both 2000 and 2001.
