Newman played in 22 of the Tigers’ 24 games this season, including eight starts. It was a difficult season for the guard, who never got his footing after suffering from a couple of minor knee injuries in the preseason.
The junior played 15.5 minutes per game on the average and shot 34.1 percent from the field and was just 8-for-32 from long range. He averaged 3.7 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. Though he struggled to shoot from the field and behind the arc, Newman was 92.3 percent from the foul line, making 12 of his 13 attempts.
