(Dec. 17, 2018) – On Monday, the Skyline Conference announced that U.S. Merchant Marine Academy senior David Washington (Frisco, Texas) was selected to the league's weekly honor roll for men's basketball.

Washington recorded back-to-back double-double efforts over the two contests, with an average of 10.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game. On Tuesday in the victory over the Beavers, Washington drained 10 points and brought down 10 rebounds. He followed that up with an 11-point, 13-rebound effort against the Maccabees on Thursday.
