D3Hoops.com names Kearney to Team of the Week for a second time

WASHINGTON – After receiving Landmark Conference Player of the Week honors on Monday, senior Chris Kearney added a second accolade in as many days on Tuesday, when he was named to the D3Hoops.com Team of the Week.  Kearney averaged 25.5 points on 64.7 percent shooting, as well as 9.0 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in two wins for No. 10 CUA last week. This is the second time this season Kearney has been named to the Team of the Week by D3Hoops.

Kearney lifted CUA to a 58-48 win over Scranton on January 19 behind a career-high 32-point performance on 15 of 24 shooting.  The Virginia native scored the Cardinals first 14 points and 16 of their first 18, to help CUA snap a 10-game skid vs. the Royals.

Kearney also pulled down 12 rebounds and blocked a pair of shots in the win.

Earlier in the week, Kearney tossed in 19 points on 7 of 10 shooting, to go along with six rebounds in a win against Susquehanna.  The captain also blocked three shots and handed out a pair of assists.

Kearney leads CUA in scoring (17.5) and rebounding (6.8) this season, while connecting on 55.7 percent of his attempts from the floor and 70 percent at the charity stripe.

Kearney and the No. 10 Cardinals (15-2, 5-1 Landmark Conference) will hit the court again on Wednesday evening when they play host to Goucher College.  Tip-off from inside the DuFour Center is set for 7 p.m.
