Question of the Day
United’s De Rosario among three finalists for MLS MVP
Dwayne De Rosario may not have led D.C. United back to the playoffs this year, but the prolific playmaker did enough to land on the shortlist for MLS Most Valuable Player honors.
De Rosario, who claimed the league’s Golden Boot with 16 goals and 12 assists, was named an MVP finalist Monday along with Houston’s Brad Davis and Dallas’ Brek Shea.
The Canadian this year became the only player in MLS history to score with three teams in one season. After starting the campaign with Toronto, De Rosario was traded to New York in April before being shipped to D.C. in June. In 18 games with United, De Rosario notched 13 goals and seven assists.
MLS also recognized United forward Charlie Davies and defender Perry Kitchen among its award finalists announced Monday.
Davies, who scored 11 goals in his first season after suffering severe injuries in an October 2009 car accident, is up for Comeback Player of the Year. Kitchen, the No. 3 pick in January’s SuperDraft out of Akron, will compete for Rookie of the Year after leading in United in minutes played.
The league will announce its Rookie of the Year on Tuesday, Comeback Player of the Year on Nov. 14 and MVP on Nov. 18.
GMU’s Cornelius to stay suspended for first 10 games
George Mason senior guard Andre Cornelius will remain suspended for the Patriots’ first 10 regular-season games, the school announced Monday.
Cornelius was suspended indefinitely in September after being arrested for credit card fraud. Cornelius, who is on track to graduate in May, will be eligible to play against Duquesne on Dec. 21, a day after the conclusion of the fall academic semester.
“The judicial process has been completed and Andre will be able to move forward practicing with the team and working towards his degree,” Mason coach Paul Hewitt said in a statement. “He has admitted that he made a mistake and accepted responsibility for it. We look forward to having him rejoin us on the court in December.”
