This Week in the A-10
By CCT Staff | December 22, 2008
CO-PLAYERS OF THE WEEK:
Kevin Anderson (So.), Richmond. Anderson set the pace for the Spiders once again last week, keeping Richmond within striking distance of No. 10 Wake Forest before he and his teammates fell just short by a score of 86-79. Anderson’s 21 points came on an impressive 8-of-11 shooting. It marked the second 20-point game of the season for the sophomore point-man and the fifth of his career. It also marked the 19th straight game in which Anderson registered in double digits. In addition to his scoring, Anderson added four rebounds and a season-high four steals to his stat line. On the year, Anderson is averaging 17.1 points per game on 48% shooting from the field.
Tommie Liddell III (Sr.), Saint Louis. The Billikens registered two wins this week, thanks in large part to the play of Liddell. Against USC-Upstate, Liddell contributed a double-double, with 12 points and 11 boards. He also added three steals and five assists to help the cause. Versus Liberty, Liddell once again recorded a double-double, this time with 15 points and 11 rebounds. In addition, his blocked shot at the buzzer helped prevent Liberty from tying the game with a three. One month into his senior campaign, Liddell boasts averages of 13.4 points and 7.4 rebounds per contest.
HONORABLE MENTION: Ray Blackburn (Jr.), St. Bonaventure; Kimmani Barrett (Jr.), La Salle
