Munoz Honored as CACC Player of the Week

Junior Alberto Munoz was named the CACC Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the week ending Jan. 13. (1/15/13)

 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.
