Male athlete of the week: J.R. Lynch


Justin Lockhart, Sports Editor

This week’s male athlete of the week goes to J.R. Lynch of the University of Hartford’s men’s basketball team. This comes after Lynch’s performance this past week against UMass Lowell, where the Hawks came out on top 78-70. During this game, the senior scored 21 points which included eight of the final 11 points that the Hawks would score that game to bring them on top. This New Jersey native was also able to get a game-high six assists for the Hawks. Finally, this game allowed Lynch to clench his 175 steal in his career which puts him second in the program’s history. J.R. Lynch has definitely been a key asset to this men’s basketball team.
