York junior guard NICK BRADY (Hanover, Pa./Delone Catholic) and Wesley junior forward COLLEEN THOMAS (Howell, N.J./Howell) were selected as the CAC Basketball Players of the Week for Jan. 19, 2009.
York junior guard NICK BRADY (Hanover, Pa./Delone Catholic) was named CAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the second time this season after leading the Spartan scorers and recording his fifth double-double of the season in the team's only game of the week -- an overtime upset of previously undefeated St. Mary's. Brady dropped in 10-of-18 shots, including half of his four long-range attempts, on the way to 26 points. He grabbed 11 of his 12 caroms off the defensive glass and dished out two assists in 35 minutes for the Spartans.
Special Mention: St. Mary's Jr. guard Camontae Griffin (Baltimore, Md./Dunbar) and Wesley Sr. guard Rashawn Johnson (Selbyville, Del./Sussex Tech) both earned special mention this week after averaging over 20 points and keeping their teams atop the CAC standings this week. Griffin chipped in 26.0 points, 5.5 assists, and 3.0 steals, while shooting .475 from the floor and .750 from the charity stripe as the Seahawks went 1-1. Johnson, last week's CAC Player of the Week, poured in 24.5 points, grabbed 5.0 rebounds and contributed 3.5 steals for the Wolverines, who are the only undefeated team in conference play heading into a full day of scheduled games on Martin Luther King Day.
Wesley junior forward COLLEEN THOMAS (Howell,
N.J./Howell) was named the CAC Women's Basketball Player
of the Week after averaging 18 points per game and shooting 60%
from the field as the Wolverines won two CAC games and stayed
within one game in the loss column of being in first place. Thomas
dropped in 15 points on 7-for-13 shooting and added three boards,
two blocks and a steal in the Rt. 13 rivalry vs. Salisbury.
Saturday, Thomas drained 21 points on 8-for-12 shooting, including
4-for-6 from long range, and added eight rebounds and two thefts in
a win over Hood.
