(PITTSBURGH, Pa.) - Carnegie Mellon University men's basketball sophomore Jack Serbin (New Albany, Ohio) was honored by D3hoops.com on the Team of the Week. Serbin helped the Tartans to a 1-1 mark over the break while also playing a huge factor in the Cardinal and Gray starting the season 9-0, its second best start in school history.
In the two contests, Serbin recorded back-to-back double-doubles giving him seven for the season. He averaged 19.0 points, 17.0 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.0 assists during the stretch. He started the break with 13 points and 14 rebounds in a 55-45 win versus Juniata. He then topped his previous career-best in rebounds by grabbing 20 while pouring in a season-high 28 points in the Tartans' lone setback of the season, 70-68 to Heidelberg. His 20-rebound effort was the most rebounds recorded by a Tartan since February 24, 2008 when Greg Gonzalez had 21 against Case Western Reserve.
Serbin currently ranks fourth in Division III with seven double-doubles and fifth in blocked shots, averaging 3.1 per contest. The sophomore is averaging 19.5 points and 10.9 rebounds per game which ranks second best in the University Athletic Association.
