York, Pa. – Assistant Capital Athletic Conference Commissioner Tim Mowrer announced Monday afternoon that senior captain Nicholas LaGuerre (Baltimore, Md./Lansdowne) is the CAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the second straight week. This is LaGuerre's third weekly award this season and he earns it for the week ending February 8th.
St. Mary's College of Maryland (15-4, 12-2 CAC) has swept the CAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week honor for three consecutive weeks as junior guard Tanner Brooks (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul's School) picked up the award on January 26th and LaGuerre the last two. LaGuerre has now won the award four times in his career.
He garnered the award after stretching his streak of 20-point games to five in a 2-0 week for first-place St. Mary's.
LaGuerre started the week with game-highs of 21 points and six assists as the Seahawks overcame a seven point first-half deficit to gain a 71-66 triumph at the University of Mary Washington last Wednesday night. He then led the way with game-bests of 28 points and five steals in the 72-59 win over Frostburg State University this past Saturday.
The 6-3 guard finished the week with averages of 24.5 points, 4.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 3.0 steals per contest while shooting 15-of-16 (93.8%) from the free throw line.
LaGuerre ranks in the Top 10 in four conference categories, including leading the CAC in scoring with 21.3 points per game. He is fifth in free throw percentage (77.7%) and steals with a 3.0 average while ranking sixth in assists per game with a 3.0 average.
St. Mary's will be back in action this Wednesday, February 11th as the Seahawks travel to York College of Pennsylvania for a conference matchup at 8:00 p.m.
