Hall wins second straight CAA Player of the Week award
College of Charleston forward Willis Hall was named the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Week for the second straight week, the league office announced Monday.
The graduate senior averaged 22 points and 19 rebounds last week, while leading the College of Charleston to a perfect 2-0 mark with wins over Davidson and Howard. He shot 61.5 perfect from the field and 76.9 percent form the free-throw lined over the two-game stretch.
Hall set new career-highs Jan. 1 with 26 points and 21 rebounds in the Cougars' 76-64 win over defending Southern Conference champion Davidson. It was College of Charleston's first 20-20 double-double game in Division I program history.
He followed it up Jan. 4 with 18 points and a game-high 17 rebounds in the Cougars' 60-50 win over Howard. The double-double was Hall's third in as many games.
The big week comes on the heels of an 18-point, 13-rebound effort Hall turned in Dec. 29 in the Cougars' 72-48 win over The Citadel that earned him his first CAA Player of the Week award.
