Rapp closed out the year tops in the UAA with an average of 7.6 assists per game, with that mark good for second place on the school's seasonal chart. Career-wise, he finished with a school-record 629 assists and his per-game average of 6.0 represented a program record.
Emory finished the year with an overall record of 23-5 with the victory total the second-highest in school history. The Eagles closed out the league portion of the schedule with a 12-2 slate, good for second place, and advanced to the Round of 16 in the postseason for the fourth time in five seasons.
