ATLANTA - Junior guard Cam Caldwell was selected as the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) Men's Basketball Player of the Week after his performances in the gym last week.
The Charlotte, N.C. native shot 52.4 percent (11-for-21) from the floor in two games last week en route to 35 points. The junior drained six shots from downtown, making 50 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. He also contributed 16 rebounds and four assists.
In Sewanee's contest against Piedmont, he went a perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line en route to an 18-point night. He also blocked three shots and grabbed eight rebounds.
In the SAA opener against Centre, he scored 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting, while grabbing eight boards.
Caldwell and the rest of the Tigers return to the hardwood Tuesday night with a non-conference bout with Covenant. Tip is slated for 7 p.m. inside Juhan Gymnasium.
