Schoof Named AU Student-Athlete of the Week Presented by GEICO

American University men’s basketball sophomore John Schoof has been honored as the AU Student-Athlete of the Week Presented by GEICO, as announced by Athletics Department Officials.

The second-year sharpshooter led American to a Patriot league win over Navy this past Wednesday, 72-49, netting a career-high 27 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the field.  Schoof was locked in, especially from 3-point range, knocking down a career-best 8-of-10 shots from downtown, one shy of the all-time AU, single-season record.

The versatile swingman also pulled down four boards and dished out four assists in the victory. Schoof went on to grab a career-high seven rebounds at Army while netting double-figure scoring for the second- straight game and seventh time this season with 12 points.

For the week, he posted impressive averages of 19.5 points per game, 5.5 rebounds per game, 3.0 assists per game, a .650 field goal percentage and .600 3-point field goal percentage. For his efforts, he was named a Patriot League Men's Basketball Honor Mention selection.
