Workman led the Judges in rebounding 17 times in 25 games this season, including seven games with double-digit caroms. He set a career-high with 18 boards in a 75-62 win over Newbury College on December 7, the highest total by a Brandeis player since 2010. He scored 10 or more points in a game 12 times, including a career-high 17 twice, on January 8 against Amherst and on January 28 against Carnegie Mellon. Workman finished the season with three double-double performances.
