Andre Snoddy was named the Northeast Conference Rookie of The Week on Monday, earning the honor for the second straight week and fourth time across the last five.

Snoddy's week saw him average a double-double, averaging 14 points per game with 12 rebounds a game. He also shot .571 from the floor.

He's posted three straight double-doubles in as many games, twice doubling up Fairleigh Dickinson (on Jan. 30 and Feb. 5) and Wagner (on Feb. 3).

Snoddy posted a career-high in points on Saturday, scoring 18 in Central's overtime win over FDU. He also had a career-high in rebounds in the game with 14 and assists with seven.

The guard-forward hybrid has been indispensable for the Blue Devils this season, leading the team in rebounds per game at 7.3 (leads all freshmen in the conference), blocks per game at 0.6 and ranks third on the team in points per game at 8.1. He also has started the second most games (21) and has missed just two games this season since assuming the starting role in the second game of the season. 

The Rookie of The Week honor once again adds to his Rookie of The Year campaign, and is one away from tying the most by a NEC rookie - which is held by Vado Morse of Mount St. Mary's during the 2018-19 season.
