RMU sophomore gets another double-double

Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011
 

Robert Morris forward Artemis Spanou is only a sophomore, but she plays like a veteran

In her first game of the season, Spanou scored 12 points and grabbed 13 rebounds against Coppin State. It was her 13th career double-double in 31 career games.

The first Northeast Conference rookie of the year in school history, Spanou also made second-team All-NEC while averaging nearly a double-double as a freshman (12.9 points, 9.5 rebounds).

In August, Spanou led Greece to a silver medal at the U18 European Championships. A month earlier, Spanou led Greece to a bronze medal in the U20 European Championships while earning MVP honors.

> > Watch out for Penn State freshman Trey Lewis, a 6-foot-1 guard from Garfield Heights, Ohio. Lewis scored 17 points in his college debut, adding four assists, two rebounds, two assists and two steals in the Nittany Lions' 70-55 win over Hartford.

Lewis, runner-up for Ohio Mr. Basketball last season who selected Penn State over Wisconsin, Duquesne and Cleveland State, will get all the playing time he can handle under first-year coach Patrick Chambers. With Penn State losing four starters to graduation, Lewis becomes the headliner. He played 31 minutes and tied for the team-high with 13 shots, making seven and drilling 3 of 6 3-pointers.

Penn State faces his first major test against Kentucky on Saturday in The Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off in Uncasville, Conn. The Wildcats, under Moon native John Calipari, reached the Final Four last season.

> > Robert Morris' men's team opens a challenging stretch this week featuring five road games in 13 days. The Colonials opened their season with a comfortable 83-57 win over Rider, which played Pitt much tougher a couple days later.

The 26-point win featured the Colonials eclipsing the 80-point milestone. That didn't happen until their ninth game last season, and the Colonials reached that mark only four times all year.

After visiting Saint Peter's on Tuesday night, Robert Morris visits Penn (Saturday), James Madison (Nov. 22), LaSalle (Nov. 25) and Pitt (Nov. 27) before returning home to face Fairleigh Dickinson on Dec. 1.
