RICHMOND, Va. -- University of Delaware freshman guard Jarvis Threatt earned his second consecutive Colonial Athletic Association Co-Rookie of the Week honor on Monday after helping the Blue Hens defeat Hofstra and Hampton as UD extended its winning streak to six games.
Threatt, a native of Richmond, Va. (Highland Springs HS), averaged 17 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists during the Blue Hens’ victories last week.
Threatt scored a game-high 20 points in the 71-57 triumph over the Pride on Tuesday, going 13 of 14 from the free throw line while adding three assists and two steals. He scored eight points in the last five minutes after the Pride had pulled within two, including a 6 of 6 performance from the charity stripe over the final 1:45 of the game.
Threatt added 14 points during Saturday’s 68-64 victory over Hampton, hitting 7 of 8 foul shots to go with four rebounds, two assists and two steals. He was again clutch from the charity stripe late in the contest, hitting both free throw attempts with 1:03 on the clock to extend a one-point UD advantage to three.
After reaching double figures in just three of the Blue Hens’ first 17 games of the season, Threatt has scored in double digits in six of the last 10 contests, averaging 14.0 points in that span. He currently ranks fourth on Delaware with 8.8 points per game and is shooting a team-best 81.7 percent from the free throw line, including a 33 of 37 performance over the last three games.
Threatt shared CAA Co-Rookie of the Week honors with Drexel’s Damion Lee for the second consecutive week, while Kent Bazemore of Old Dominion earned CAA Player of the Week accolades.
Threatt and the Blue Hens, whose six-game winning streak is the program’s longest since 2001, close out the regular season with a 7 p.m. road game at Towson on Wednesday and a 12 noon home contest with Northeastern on Saturday.
