Huskies Host Emmanuel on Wednesday (4 p.m.)

            GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference announced its third set of weekly men's lacrosse awards Monday afternoon with University of Southern Maine freshman attackman Nick James (Portland, Maine/Deering) being this week's recipient of the Rookie of the Week honor.

            In the Huskies' season-opening game last week, James played a key role in a 10-9, come-from-behind victory over Norwich University notching two goals and one assist.

            He scored his first collegiate goal in the final minute of the first half to pull the Huskies within three (7-4) at the break.  With his team still down three (9-6) late in the third quarter, James scored his second goal of the game to spark a run of four unanswered USM goals to pull out the win.

            Southern Maine, 1-0 on the season, hosts Emmanuel College at Hannaford Field on Wednesday.  Game time is 4 p.m.
