Kent State junior guard Rod Sherman was named the MAC East Player of the Week for his performance over the weekend during the Hispanic College Fund Classic. Sherman was named MVP of the tournament and helped lead the Flashes to a 2-1 record. He averaged 14.7 points per game, 5.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists while shooting 50 percent from the floor. That's not a bad return for Sherman, who missed of all last season while recovering from knee surgery, then dislocated his elbow a few weeks ago, and is also trying to get his conditioning and his legs underneath him after sitting out the full season.
