The Bearcats received some good news this afternoon. Freshman guard Yosef Yacob has been named the America East Rookie of the Week. Yacob becomes the fourth BU freshman to earn those honors. He averaged 15 points and 6.5 assists in two America East games last week. In Thursday’s win over New Hampshire Yacob registered 12 assists…the most of any America East player this season.
