RICHMOND, Va. – Blue Hen freshman guard Kevin Anderson earned his second consecutive CAA Men’s Basketball Rookie of the Week honor on Tuesday.

Anderson (Williamsport, Pa./St. John Neumann) led Delaware with 22 points and tied his season-high with four three-pointers in the Blue Hens’ 76-62 home victory over CSU Bakersfield last Wednesday. He went 7 of 11 from the field while adding six rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in 35 minutes of action.

Anderson, who reached double figures for the eighth time this season including the last three contests, finished one point shy of his season-high. He continues to lead all CAA freshmen by averaging 13.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game and also ranks seventh in the league with a 1.8 assist/turnover ratio, 10th with 2.9 assists per game, and 10th with 33.2 minutes played per game.

Anderson also was named CAA Rookie of the Week on Dec. 18, while Ryan Allen earned the award on Dec. 4.
