Logan, an All-Northeast-10 third team selection as a sophomore, ranks third in the NE-10 and 21st nationally with his eight double-doubles this season. He is averaging a team-high 19.7 points per game (4th NE-10) on 49.3-percent shooting from the field, including 39.2% (31-for-79) from three-point distance, while converting 71.9% (46-64) of his free-throws.

Logan has scored in double figures all 19 games so far this winter, posting a string of 24 straight double-figure games dating back to last season. He became the 39th player in program history to reach the 1,000-point plateau against the University of New Haven on January 12 and has since moved up to 24th place on the program's career scoring list with 1,072 points.
