NORFOLK, Va. (January 17, 2023) – The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) revealed its men’s basketball weekly accolades where Howard University freshman standout Shy Odom (Chestnut Hill, Mass.) grabbed his fifth league Rookie of the Week award. The announcement came Tuesday afternoon.


Over the weekend, Odom averaged 11.5 points and 5.0 rebounds while guiding the Bison to a pair of victories at Norfolk State (Jan. 14) and versus Morehouse (Jan. 16).


He produced 15 points and seven boards in the road win at Norfolk State. In the annual MLK Day Classic against the Maroon Tigers, Odom registered eight points and three rebounds in the victory.


Since being inserted into the starting lineup, the Massachusetts native has reached double figures in scoring five times while leading HU to a 6-2 mark during that span.


Sophomore D.C. natives, guards Marcus Dockery and Elijah Hawkins earned honorable mention.


Morgan State senior guard Isaiah Burke was named MEAC Player of the Week while fellow classmate Malik Miller of Morgan State took home the league’s Defensive Player of the Week.
