St. Joe's freshman and Philly native Charlie Brown was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie team Tuesday.
Brown is second on the Hawks with 12.8 points per game and 5.1 rebounds. He also leads St. Joe's in free throw percentage (81.9), three-point percentage (37.6), and he's already set a Hawks freshman record with 67 made threes.
St. Joe's (11-19, 4-14 A-10) next plays Wednesday at 6 p.m. on CSN against UMass in its Atlantic 10 Tournament opener. The Hawks enter having won their last game to break a nine-game skid.

Temple: Rose makes AAC All-Rookie team
Temple guard Quinton Rose was named to the American Athletic Conference's All-Rookie team on Tuesday.
Rose made an immediate impact for the Owls this season, particularly with his scoring. He has scored in double digits 17 times for an average of 10.0 points per game. The Rochester, NY native is seeking to become the first Temple freshman to average double figures in points since Mark Tyndale in 2004-05.
Rose also averaged 3.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game this season as he became the first Owls player since Lavoy Allen to be named to the All-Rookie team.
Rose joins Jarron Cumberland (Cincinnati), Vance Jackson (UConn), Jeremy Sheppard (East Carolina) and American Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year K.J. Lawson (Memphis) on the All-Rookie team.
