Kevin Menner Earns CCAA Player of the Week Honor
Kevin Menner of the men's basketball team received California Collegiate Athletic Association Player of the Week honors for the week of Jan. 31 to Feb. 6.
Menner, a senior from Brooklyn, N.Y., played a pivotal role in helping the Broncos to a home sweep of Cal State L.A. and No. 8 Cal State Dominguez Hills. He averaged 22.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 assists, while shooting 68.2 percent (15-for-22) from the field and converting all of his 15 free throw attempts.
In Friday's 68-48 win over CSULA, Menner led all scorers with 25 points, collected three rebounds, three steals and two assists. He finished the contest 8-for-11 from the field and 9-for-9 from the foul line.
Menner followed that effort with a game-high 20 points and three rebounds in 23 minutes of action to spark the Broncos to a 49-43 comeback victory. He made 7-of-11 field goals and 6-of-6 foul shots.
Menner, who is averaging 12.1 points a game on the season, scored 16 points after intermission as CPP overcame a 20-point second-half deficit. The Broncos, who trailed 33-19 at halftime, outscored CCSUDH 30-10 in the second half.
The Toros were held scoreless for the final 10 minutes as the Broncos scored the game's final 20 points.
CPP, in a tie for fourth place in the CCAA, returns to action on Friday when it hosts first-place Humboldt State.
