(Nashua, New Hampshire) The Rivier University Athletics Department is pleased to announce that junior Angel Perez (Miami, Fla.) has been selected as the Rivier University Male Student-Athlete of the Month.
Male Student-Athlete of the Month: Angel Perez | Men's Basketball
Perez was named after guiding the Men's Basketball team to their first win of the season - a 99-72 triumph over Paul Smith's College on December 10th. In that game, the junior guard set the individual Raider record for Made Free-Throws in a game as he went 20-for-20 on his way to a 40 point night. It was the best night in Perez' short career in Raider Blue as he shot 8-for-12 from the floor including knocking down 4-of-5 from beyond the arc. The Miami, Floirda native also pulled down eight rebounds in his 26 minutes of work.
For the month, Perez averaged 22.5 points per game. He steadily improved over the team's four game as his point total went up in each contest (14-16-20-40).
This is the first time in his career that Perez has been named the Rivier Male Student-Athlete of the Month.
