The start of Alec Rodway’s senior season was delayed by injury but the JB Hoops alum still managed to climb to seventh in Misericordia University men’s basketball history in career assists.
Misericordia fell short of preseason expectations as conference favorite, finishing 14-12, but Rodway had some special moments along the way.
The Valley View graduate had 10 points and a career-high 13 assists Dec. 19 in a 92-87 win over Wesley. Rodway went 6-for-6 from the floor while scoring a season-high 14 points Jan. 12 in a 91-71 win over Manhattanville. In the final game of his career, Rodway shot 4-for-5, making both 3-point attempts while finishing with 10 points, 6 assists and 3 rebounds in a 76-69 ECAC Tournament loss to Marymount (Va.).
On the season, Rodway averaged 5.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and a team-leading 3.4 assists in 21 games, including 19 starts. He ranked fifth among Middle Atlantic Conference Freedom players in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.6). He shot 43.2 percent from the floor, 35.6 from 3-point range and 61.3 from the line.
Rodway played 92 games for the Cougars in his four-year career, making 67 starts. He compiled 281 assists.
The 5-foot-10 guard led the MAC Freedom in assist-to-turnover ratio as a junior after sharing the lead in his sophomore season.
