December 5, 2005
Olson opened the weekend in grand fashion, setting a PVC record with 12 assists in an 80-74 win over Springfield College on Friday night. He also notched a career-high 18 points and five rebounds in the win. Olson followed with a 17-point, five-assist performance in Saturday's 102-77 romp over Westfield State College, in which he was a flawless five-for-five from behind the arc.
Olson currently leads the NESCAC with a scorching 69.2% (nine-for-13) from three-point land. He also ranks among the conference leaders in assists (5.75 apg) and field goal percentage (54.3%). As a rookie, he took home Co-NESCAC Rookie of the Year plaudits after finishing fourth in the conference in assist/turnover ratio (2.51) and eighth in assists (4.04 apg).
Amherst returns to action tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 7 p.m. against local non-conference visitor Western New England College.
