Downey Earns Rookie Big East Honors

Freshman point guard earns All-Big East Rookie honors.

University of Cincinnati freshman point guard Devan Downey has received Big East Conference Rookie of the Week honors for his performance in the Bearcats 92-83 road victory over Vanderbilt on Saturday.

Downey, who hails from Chester, South Carolina, posted a career high of 18 points (16 in second half) and tied a career high of four assists in the teams victory. While his offensive performance was impressive, his efforts on defense played a key part in the teams victory as he held Pre-Season All-SEC selection Mario Moore to five points.

The Bearcats return to the court Wednesday, December 14, 2005 as Ohio University travels to Fifth-Third Arena for an 8:00 p.m. contest. The Women's team will also play on Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. against Texas-Arlington at Fifth-Third.
