Men's basketball player honored by NESCAC
Hamilton College's Joseph Lin '15 (Palo Alto, Calif./Berkshire School [Mass.]) was selected the NESCAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week on Jan. 12.
Lin averaged 21.5 points, 11.0 assists and 2.5 steals in two NESCAC games last week. He set a team record with 16 assists and added 16 points in Friday’s 93-86 setback against nationally ranked No. 18 Amherst College. The 16 assists are tied for the highest total by any NCAA Division III player this season.
Lin poured in a career-high 27 points and dished out six assists in Saturday’s 60-51 loss to Trinity College. He committed just three turnovers in the two games for an assist-to-turnover ratio of 7.3.
Lin leads the NESCAC and is ranked eighth in Division III with 6.5 assists per game this season. He is ninth in the conference in scoring with 14.6 points per game and is seventh with 1.5 steals per game.
Lin and the Continentals (0-2 NESCAC, 10-4) travel to Colby College for a NESCAC game on Friday, Jan. 16, and they play another conference game at Bowdoin College the next day.
