WASHINGTON — For the second-consecutive week, third time this season and ninth in his career, The Catholic University of America men's basketball senior Jay Howard was selected as the Landmark Conference Athlete of the Week, as announced by the league office on Monday afternoon.
Last week Howard set a new career-high with 33 points in the Cardinals' upset win over previously undefeated Juniata. The Cards defeated the No. 23-ranked Eagles, 82-70, as Howard played all 40 minutes and went 12-of-19 from the field.
The Pennsauken, N.J., native averaged nearly 30 points for the week with 26 against Widener, a game that saw a buzzer-beater go against the Cardinals.
He ended the week with averages of 29.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 11.5 free throws with 51.4-percent shooting from the floor and 74.2 from the line.
Catholic, winners of five of its last six, continues Landmark play this Wednesday and begin a two-game road swing this week with a matchup at Elizabethtown. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m.
