By René Reyes/DFP Staff

For his 29-point performance last week in the Boston University men's basketball team's 85-79 win over St. Joseph's at Agganis Arena, junior guard Darryl Partin earned the America East Player of the Week award, the conference announced Monday afternoon.

The transfer from La Salle University led all scorers with 29 points last Tuesday, shooting 10-of-15 from the field and knocking down 6-of-8 attempts from 3-point range to bolster the Terriers to their first-ever victory over the Hawks.

Last month, Partin netted a career-high 32 points – 30 of which came in the second half – in a 66-61 win over Cornell University on Nov. 11 at Case Gymnasium. Partin is averaging 12.5 points per game, second on the team behind senior forward John Holland (17.6 ppg).

The University of Vermont's Brian Voelkel was named AE's Rookie of the Week, rounding out the conference's final weekly awards of 2010.
