MAYNOR WINS FOURTH CAA WEEKLY AWARD

RICHMOND, Va. – Virginia Commonwealth University senior Eric Maynor (Raeford, N.C.), who posted back-to-back 30-point efforts, was named the Colonial Athletic Association’s Player of the Week Monday.

It’s the fourth time this season and the second consecutive week that Maynor has picked up the honor.

A 6-3 guard, Maynor averaged 31.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists in two games. Maynor scored 30 points during the Rams’ 68-63 loss to first-place Northeastern Jan. 27. He followed with a 33-point, nine-rebound effort in VCU’s win over Hofstra Jan. 31. Maynor poured in 21 of his 33 points in the second half of that contest as he led the Rams back from a 12-point deficit.

Maynor is averaging 23.2 points this season, which ranks 10th nationally. He is also handing out a CAA-best 5.9 assists and grabbing 3.8 rebounds per game.

VCU (16-6, 9-2 CAA) will return to action on Wednesday, Feb. 4 when it takes on UNC Wilmington at 7 p.m. at Trask Coliseum in Wilmington, N.C.
