Rosen Named Ivy League POY

Penn’s senior guard Zack Rosen was named first-team All-Ivy, and named Ivy League Player of the Year on Wednesday, the highest honor that can be bestowed on a player in that conference. He was unanimously elected for both honors, and is only the fourth player to be unanimously elected as POY since 2000.

This is the 16th time a Penn player has won Player of the Year in the 38 years the award has existed.

Rosen averaged over 15 points per game for his career, and just over 5 assists as well.

Rosen finished the year leading the conference in scoring, averaging an incredible 18.6 points per game. He was also second in the Ivy League in 3-pointers per game (2.2) and 3-point field goal percentage (.392). He was also third in free-throw percentage (.886), and sixth in both steals per game (1.5) and assists per game (3.8).

As Rosen finishes out his UPenn career, he has broken the school’s records for both assists and minutes played. He is tied for the program lead with 113 starts, and is one assist short of Penn’s single season record. With 1,686 career points, he is also 3rd on Penn’s all-time scoring list.

Rosen is simply one of Penn’s greatest players, and it is a shame he never got an opportunity to play in the NCAA Tournament.
