Jennings named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings has been named Eastern Conference rookie of the month for October and November.

The NBA made the announcement Tuesday.

Jennings averaged rookie highs of 21.8 points per game -- ranking 10th overall in the NBA -- and 5.7 assists while starting in all 16 of the Bucks' games in October and November. He also shot 50 percent from three-point range, ranking fifth in the league, and averaged four rebounds per game.

Since his debut, Jennings has had seven games with 20 or more points, including a 55-point game in a win over Golden State -- the most points scored by a rookie since Earl Monroe had 56 in 1968.
