New Haven, Conn. - For the second straight week a member of the Holy Family University men's basketball team was named the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Men's Basketball Player of the Week as junior Alberto Munoz (Morrisville, N.C./Cardinal Gibbons) took home this week's honor as announced by the conference office Monday evening. Last week, fellow classmate Ervin Ezell (Deptford, N.J./Deptford High) received the conference's weekly accolade.
Munoz helped lead the Tigers to an 83-70 victory over visiting Goldey-Beacom College this past Saturday in the team's lone game of the week. The win pushed Holy Family over the .500 mark with an 8-7 overall record and improved to 4-2 in the CACC.
Munoz gave the Tigers plenty of offense as he finished with a career-high 29 points after knocking down a career-best seven three-pointers. Munoz shot an impressive 10-of-17 from the field, including 7-of-12 from beyond the arc. He finished the first half shooting 5-of-6 from the field and 4-of-5 from deep range versus the Lightning.
This year, Munoz is currently averaging 15.1 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. He has also knocked down 45 three-pointers this season, which ranks second in the conference.
Holy Family is back in action tonight as the Tigers host the University of the Sciences in a CACC contest. Game time is slated for 8 p.m. Entering tonight's game, Munoz is 52 points away from becoming the 22nd player in program history to reach 1,000-career points. He currently has 948 career points.
