HOUSTON - After enjoying a career day on Saturday, University of Houston sophomore forward Danrad Knowles was named to the American Athletic Conference Weekly Honor Roll on Monday morning.
This is the second time that Knowles has earned a place on the Weekly Honor Roll but the first time in 2014-15. He also was a two-time Rookie of the Week honoree as a freshman during the 2013-14 campaign.
In two games last week, Knowles averaged 23.5 points per game and led the Cougars with 17 field goals, four 3-pointers, nine free throws in 14 attempts and four blocked shots.
The Nassau, Bahamas, native posted 16 points with six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a pair of steals in 34 minutes at East Carolina. However, he saved his best performance for later in the week.
Against Tulane inside Hofheinz Pavilion on Saturday, Knowles recorded a career-high 31 points on 11-of-15 shooting from the field and 7-of-9 from the free throw line. It was his second 20-point game of the season and his career and topped his previous high of 22 points against South Carolina State during the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic Regional Round on Dec. 20.
Knowles nearly set his scoring personal best by halftime, totaling 19 points in the first 20 minutes against the Green Wave.
He became only the 55th player in school history to score 30+ points in a game and joined current teammate Jherrod Stiggers as the only Cougars to accomplish the feat in 2014-15.
Knowles was joined on The American Honor Roll by Cincinnati guard Troy Caupain, Memphis forward Calvin Godfrey, SMU forward Markus Kennedy and Tulane guard Louis Dabney.
Tulsa guard James Woodard was named the league's Player of the Week, while UCF guard B.J. Taylor was recognized as the Rookie of the Week.
Knowles and his teammates return to action at 6 p.m. (CST) Wednesday, when they square off against American Athletic Conference rival Cincinnati inside Fifth Third Arena.
