WASHINGTON - Georgetown University senior men's basketball player Markel Starks (Accokeek, Md./Georgetown Prep) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll for the second-straight week on Feb. 10.
Starks helped the Hoyas to their fourth-straight win on Monday night, coming from behind to beat Providence, 83-71, at Verizon Center. GU improved to 15-9 overall and 6-6 in the BIG EAST with the win.
In a pair of games last week, wins at DePaul (71-59) and over Butler at home (71-63), Georgetown's senior co-captain averaged 22.5 points and 4.5 assists
In the win at DePaul, Starks scored 26 points, hitting 11-of-14 free throw attempts, as the Hoyas used a big second half to come back for the win. He followed that up with 19 points, seven assists and no turnovers in the team's win over Butler on Saturday.
The nod on the Honor Roll was the second-straight for Starks, who was also named on Feb. 3 after performances in a 1-1 week against then-No. 4 Villanova and then-No. 7 Michigan State. He averaged 18.0 points, 4.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds.
Starks, who has scored in double figures 20 times this season, is second on the team in scoring with 16.9 points per game and leads the team with 4.0 assists per game. He ranks seventh in the BIG EAST in scoring, is sixth in the league in assists and seventh in free throw percentage (82.9%). Overall this season, he has played 91.5 percent of the team's minutes (888-of-970) played.
Starks passed the 1,000-point mark for his career in the loss to Villanova last Monday, becoming the 44th player in program history to pass that mark. He has now scored 1,079 points in 117 games (a 9.2 per game average) and needs six more to pass Bill Bolger ('53) for 35th all-time.
In the last six games, he is averaging 20.6 points and 4.1 assists per game.
GU's backcourt of Starks and sophomore guard D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera (Indianapolis, Ind./North Central/Oak Hill) is averaging 33.9 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 2.0 steals. They have combined to score 47.5 percent of Georgetown's total points this season (813 of 1,713). Together, they are shooting 42.6 percent from the floor (258-of-605), 35.5 percent from three-point land and (87-of-245) and 85.4 percent from the free throw line (210--of-246).
