Temple’s Quinton Rose (Bishop Kearney) was named the American Athletic Conference men’s basketball Player of the Week for the week of Nov. 25. Rose and the Owls played three games at a Thanksgiving tournament in Orlando and finished the week 2-1, with Rose averaging 14.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game
Rose had his quietest game of the week Thanksgiving morning, when he scored nine points with nine rebounds in a loss to No. 5 Maryland. He followed that up a day later with 19 points, six rebounds and four assists in a win over Texas A&M.
In Temple’s final game of the week, Sunday against Davidson, Rose nearly reached triple-double heights. He finished an assist shy, totaling 14 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in another Owls win.
Rose, a senior, is leading Temple in scoring at 14.6 points per game. He’s also averaging 5.4 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game.
There’ll be a chance for Rose to continue his basketball career professionally after college, too. He’s listed as “on the bubble” to be taken in the 2020 NBA Draft on NBADraftRoom.com.
