Rodriguez set a new career- high scoring mark with 27 points against Central Connecticut State on November 24 and hit for 26 points versus Boston University on Saturday. He recorded his fourth career double-double against Boston University when he grabbed 10 rebounds to go with 26 points.
Rodriguez added 8 rebounds per game and shot .630 going 17 - 27 in the two games. A member of last year's America East All-Rookie Team, Rodriguez has keyed the BU offense this season averaging 18.4 points per game.
