Men's Basketball - Tue, Feb. 17, 2009
Joliet, Ill. - For the first time this season, Saint Xavier University senior forward Scott Campbell (Detroit, Mich./Waubonsee CC/MacKenzie) earned the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) Men's Basketball Division I Player of the Week honor after being instrumental in two big victories for the Cougars during the week ending February 15. Campbell posted a .615 field-goal shooting percentage in averaging 16.5 points in victories over Trinity Christian College, ranked No. 25 in the latest NAIA Division II poll, and league rival University of St. Francis (Ill.). He also produced 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game over the two contests.
Campbell hit nine of his 12 shots from the field en route to an 18-point effort in the 64-61 victory over Trinity Christian on Feb. 11. That same night, he pulled down five rebounds and collected two steals. Three days later, in a 76-56 win over St. Francis, he converted at a 50 percent clip (7-of-14) in a 15-point, eight-rebound contest. It was the first time this season a player from the SXU men's basketball team has earned the conference's weekly honor.
Saint Xavier (15-12 overall/4-3 CCAC) wraps up its regular-season home slate on Saturday, February 21, with a conference match-up against Indiana University-South Bend (IUSB). The game is scheduled for a 3 p.m. start at the Shannon Center in Chicago.
