YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its weekly awards for men's basketball on Monday and Salisbury University junior Tim Harwood was named the league's Player of the Week.
Harwood led the Gulls to two wins in the past week, including a 68-64 overtime win against Frostburg State University on Saturday in Salisbury's CAC opener, as the team is out to the program's best start since the 1996-97 season.
Harwood scored 20 points against the Bobcats on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor, to go with six rebounds and three assists. The 20-point effort was the Rockville, Md., native's second of the week, following a career-best 26 in a 69-59 victory at Goucher College. In that game, Harwood connected on 6-of-11 from beyond the three-point arc.
The guard ranks sixth in the CAC in scoring this season, with 13.6 points per contest, and is fourth in the league in three-point shooting percentage (.453) among players with at least 20 attempts.
This marks Salisbury's third award in four weeks, as senior Travon Vann claimed the honor in the opening two weeks of the season.
The Sea Gulls will be back on the court on Monday, Dec. 17 at No. 1 Virginia Wesleyan College. That game is slated to begin at 8 p.m.
