Kevin Menner of the men’s basketball team received California Collegiate Athletic Association Player of the Week honors for the week of Jan. 31 to Feb. 6.
Menner, a senior from Brooklyn, N.Y., played a pivotal role in helping the Broncos to a home sweep of Cal State L.A. and No. 8 Cal State Dominguez Hills. He averaged 22.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 assists, while shooting 68.2 percent (15-for-22) from the field and converting all of his 15 free throw attempts.
In Friday’s 68-48 win over CSULA, Menner led all scorers with 25 points, collected three rebounds, three steals and two assists. He finished the contest 8-for-11 from the field and 9-for-9 from the foul line.
Menner followed that effort with a game-high 20 points and three rebounds in 23 minutes of action to spark the Broncos to a 49-43 comeback victory. He made 7-of-11 field goals and 6-of-6 foul shots.
Menner, who is averaging 12.1 points a game on the season, scored 16 points after intermission as CPP overcame a 20-point second-half deficit. The Broncos, who trailed 33-19 at halftime, outscored CCSUDH 30-10 in the second half.
The Toros were held scoreless for the final 10 minutes as the Broncos scored the game’s final 20 points.
CPP, in a tie for fourth place in the CCAA, returns to action on Friday when it hosts first-place Humboldt State.
