Fredericksburg, Va. – Junior Spencer Schultz (Clear Spring, Md./Clear Spring) picked up the Capital Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week award for the week ending December 16. This is Schultz’s first-ever conference weekly honor.
The 6-7 forward earned CAC Player of the Week honors after leading the St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s basketball team to the York (N.Y.) College Invitational tournament title this past weekend. Schultz notched tournament MVP honors after averaging 25.5 points and 7.0 rebounds in two wins for the Seahawks.
He started the weekend by tallying a game-best 23 points on 10-of-21 shooting in a narrow 82-80 victory over Saint Vincent College in the opening round of the tournament. Schultz added four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks as well.
Schultz followed that up with a game- and career-best 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting from the floor and a 7-of-10 effort at the charity stripe as St. Mary’s posted a 76-64 triumph over York in the championship game. He registered his third double-double of the season as well with 10 rebounds.
He has scored 20-plus points five times this season, including four straight. Schultz currently leads the CAC in scoring with 22.0 points per game while ranking third with an 8.2 rebounding average.
The Seahawks (4-6) will be back in action this afternoon (Dec. 17), welcoming Greensboro College to the Michael P. O’Brien Athletics & Recreation Center Arena for a non-conference contest at 3:00 p.m.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
