George Tinsley is making an early impact at Binghamton University.
The 6-foot-6 freshman forward was named this morning as the America East Conference men’s basketball Rookie of the Week.
Tinsley had back-to-back double-doubles while combining for 31 points and 23 rebounds in Binghamton’s two games during the week.
The JB Hoops alum from Abington Heights had 21 points and 12 rebounds in his home debut Saturday to help the Bearcats to their first win in four games this season, 76-72, over Sacred Heart University.
Tinsley had two 3-pointers in an 8-2 run that started Binghamton back into the game after Sacred Heart scored the first 15 points.
More coverage of Tinsley’s fast start at Binghamton is on the way. Return to the JB Hoops Blog this week and come back throughout the season for updates on how all of our alumni are doing on the college and professional level.
