NEWPORT NEWS, Va.Reed Bailey of the Davidson men’s basketball team has been selected Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week for games played Nov. 21-27, as announced by the league office Monday afternoon.

Bailey, a freshman from Harvard, Mass., scored a season-high 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting in the Wildcats’ 89-80 victory over San Francisco this past Friday. In addition to nailing a 3-pointer with 4:51 to play, that put Davidson in front for good, the 6-11 forward converted all five of his attempts from the charity stripe.

Through his first seven contests in a Wildcat uniform, Bailey is averaging 8.1 points per game, while shooting 58.3 percent (21-36) from the floor and 50 percent (5-10) from long range.

Davidson, which sits at 6-1 overall, returns to the hardwood tomorrow evening when it hosts cross-county rival Charlotte in the annual Battle for the Hornets’ Nest Trophy at 7 p.m.
