    Default Week of 12 /17/18: Anthony Townes, UOP

    WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – ANTHONY TOWNES, SR., F – PACIFIC
    Senior forward Anthony Townes was key in the Pacific men’s basketball 2-0 week against Big West squads – Long Beach State (74-68) and Cal State Northridge (79-77).

    Overall, Townes averaged 19 points on 70.6 percent shooting from the field and 93.3 percent shooting from the free throw line. In addition, he averaged 7.5 rebounds .5 steals and .5 blocks per game.

    In a rare Monday night game, Townes was one of three Pacific players to score in double-figures as he totaled 14. After only scoring two points in the first half, Townes went a perfect 4-for-4 from the field and the free throw line to score 12 of his total points in the second half. Then in Sunday’s road game at Cal State Northridge, the Modesto, Calif. native produced his best performance of the season. In 30 minutes of work he scored a career-high 24 points on 8-for-12 shooting from the field and 8-for-9 shooting from the free throw line and pulled down a team-leading seven rebounds.

    The two wins extends the Tigers win streak to 4 as they improve to 9-4 on the season. That record marks the best start since the 2013-14 season.
