Pancoast, Rote, and Thompson Earn Weekly Conference Honors Babson Park, Mass. - January 14, 2013 - Three Springfield College student-athletes were honored for their efforts by the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC). Jordan Rote was named the men's basketball player of the week, while Kenny Pancoast and Jennifer Thompson earned diver of the week accolades.

In addition, Rote was chosen as the ECAC Division III New England Co-Player of the Week.

Rote picks up the weekly honor for the first time this season, while this marks the third time this season that Pancoast was honored with the weekly accolade. Thompson has been recognized with this award six times this season.

Rote, who hails from Sheffield, Mass., averaged 20 points per game, shooting 54.5% from the floor to go along with 6.5 rebounds, 3.0 steals, and 2.5 assists per game.

He opened the week with 10 points, six boards, and four helpers as the Pride knocked off MIT in a rematch of last year's conference championship.

Two days later, Rote was then tremendous in an overtime win at Babson as he produced a career-best 30 points. Rote connected on 8-of-14 field goal attempts to go along with a 13-for-14 showing at the charity stripe. He also added seven boards and three steals in the win.

In a dual-meet victory against NYU on Saturday Pancoast, who hails from Monroe, Conn. won the three-meter with national-qualifying score of 311.33. Later on the one-meter, the senior had the top score and added his second qualifying mark of the day with a 289.65.

On the women's side, Thompson posted a national qualifying score of 305.10 to claim first place on the three-meter board. The Cheshire, Conn. native earlier placed second on the one-meter with a 248.70. Thanks to her efforts, Thompson helped the Pride best visiting NYU.
