WASHINGTON – Following a dominant showing at the Hoopsville National Invitational Classic over the weekend, senior Chris Kearney was named to the D3Hoops.com Team of the Week on Tuesday. Kearney averaged 18.5 points on 58% shooting and also pulled down 9 rebounds per game in the two wins over nationally ranked opponents.
Kearney had quite the weekend, beginning with an 18-point, six rebound performance in CUA's 67-41 blowout of No. 16 Transylvania on Friday. The Virginia native also registered three steals and three blocks in the victory.
One day later, Kearney went back to work, this time totaling a double-double with 19 points and 12 boards, in addition to three more blocks and a steal in a 65-52 victory over No. 19 St. Mary's. In 77 minutes of action at the tournament, Kearney committed just one turnover.
Kearney and the Cardinals are off for the Thanksgiving holiday before returning to action on Monday, November 26 when they travel to Pennsylvania to face Haverford. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
