TCB…

I know I promised some Tra Hawthorne commentary today, but I got hung up in the whole history coming full circle post from this morning. Plus, I have some business to take care of–namely the official awards. Hawthorne tomorrow, along with more previews and predictions.

From the home office in Richmond, VA:

CAA MEN’S BASKETBALL CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Junior Hairston, Towson

Hairston had a spectacular Towson debut with career-highs of 26 points and 21 rebounds to lead the Tigers to an 83-69 victory over rival Loyola on Friday night. The College of Charleston transfer became just the second player in school history to record a 20-20 game and his 21 boards tied a 29-year-old Towson Center record. Hairston was 10-of-15 from the floor and also added three assists and three blocked shots.

CAA MEN’S BASKETBALL CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Vladimir Kuljanin, UNC Wilmington

Kuljanin posted career-highs of 25 points and 18 rebounds as UNC Wilmington pulled out a 98-91 overtime triumph against the College of Charleston on Saturday night. The senior center had just six points at the half before breaking loose in the final 25 minutes. Kuljanin was 11-of-14 from the floor and also had four assists and two blocks. His 18 rebounds were the third-highest total in school history.

CAA MEN’S BASKETBALL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK

Gerald Colds, Drexel

Colds averaged 14.0 points as Drexel opened the season 2-0 by beating rival Penn and Navy. The freshman guard made 6-of-9 from 3-point range, including a pair in overtime, and netted 18 points as the Dragons edged Penn. Colds also tallied double digits with 10 points in a 16-point victory over Navy. The freshman shot 57.1% (8-of-14) from beyond the arc for the week.

Double Your Pleasure

Eight CAA players combined for nine double-doubles in the first 13 games of the season. Drexel senior center Frank Elegar achieved the feat twice as the Dragons beat Penn (14pts/11reb) and Navy (24pts/14reb). Also posting double-doubles were Towson’s Junior Hairston (26pts/21reb), UNCW’s Vladimir Kuljanin (25pts/18reb) and Todd Hendley (15pts/12reb), George Mason’s Will Thomas (16pts/17reb), Georgia State’s Rashad Chase (12pts/10reb) and Northeastern’s Nkem Ojougboh (10pts/13reb) and Chaisson Allen (11pts/10reb).

  1. I too remember Mouse, but weren’t you old enough to see James Worthy play for UNC?

  2. You bet–remember, I grew up just north of Tobacco Road. Loved seeing Worthy, Perkins, Jordan, Doherty, and Jimmy Black. How that lineup ever lost a game is beyond me.
