MAYNOR WINS FOURTH CAA WEEKLY AWARD
RICHMOND, Va. Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Virginia Commonwealth University senior Eric Maynor (Raeford, N.C.), who posted back-to-back 30-point efforts, was named the Colonial Athletic AssociationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Player of the Week Monday.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 RamsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ 68-63 loss to first-place Northeastern Jan. 27. He followed with a 33-point, nine-rebound effort in VCUÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.
