HVIAC announces weekly awards; Four Berkeley College standouts named to Honor Roll

The Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference announced its weekly award winners on Tuesday morning, and the Berkeley College of New York basketball teams had four players named to the Honor Roll – including two student-athletes from each gender.

On the men’s side, senior guard Jovan Bovell and sophomore guard Keenan Langston received recognition. Bovell led the Knights during Berkeley’s 2-1 week for the period of Monday, February 3 through Sunday, February 9. The standout guard scored 19 points in the Knights’ 99-87 victory over Davis College this past Saturday, and a day later he netted 18 points in the Knights’ 72-57 win at SUNY ESF

Langston also had an impressive week for Berkeley, as the Brooklyn Academy High School product averaged 14 points for the week. In an 84-76 HVIAC defeat at the hands of Sarah Lawrence College this past Thursday evening, the guard scored 18 points on six-of-nine shooting while also connecting on four of his five attempts from the floor.

Berkeley College’s men’s basketball team returns to action on Tuesday evening, as the Knights host the University of Maine Fort Kent at the College of New Rochelle’s Wellness Center. Start-time for that game is scheduled for 6:00pm. Prior to the contest, the Berkeley College Athletic Department will honor seven seniors in a special pregame ceremony.

On the women’s side, Berkeley’s Patricia Patterson and Janay Thomas earned Honor Roll praise for their performances in the Knights’ 1-1 week from the period of Monday, February 3 through Sunday, February 9. Patterson scored six points, grabbed five rebounds, and had four steals in the Knights’ 55-37 win over Yeshiva University on February 3. Six days later, she put together a 15 point, 11 rebound performance in Berkeley’s 72-56 defeat at the hands of the Apprentice School.

Thomas paced the Knights against Yeshiva University back on February 3, as she posted game-highs in points with 20 and steals with seven while also grabbing nine rebounds and Berkeley turned back the Maccabees 55-37 at the Wellness Center on the campus of the College of New Rochelle. Then on February 9, she scored 15 points and grabbed five rebounds in Berkeley’s 72-56 setback at the hands of the Apprentice School Lady Builders.

Berkeley College’s women’s basketball unit will return to action on Saturday, February 15, as the Knights will play in the semifinals of the 2014 Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament at the College of New Rochelle. Berkeley’s opponent is still to-be-determined, and start-time for the game will be either 6:00pm or 8:00pm.
