Kerr Wins First Career CACC Player of the Week Award

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – University of the Sciences senior Tanner Kerr has won his first career Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Player of the Week award, it was announced on Monday. 

Kerr posted back-to-back double-doubles, the second and third of his career, to begin CACC play, averaging 20.0 points and 11.0 rebounds along the way. He set a career-high in scoring in both games, and matched his career-best with 12 boards in Saturday's victory at Chestnut Hill. The senior shot 14-of-23 from the field (60.9 percent) and made 12 free throws. 

The Avalon, N.J. native began his senior CACC season with his second career double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds in Tuesday's two-point defeat to Holy Family. At one point he scored seven straight points to give USciences its largest lead of six with 5:49 to play. 

On Saturday, Kerr made the final two free throws of a stretch in which the Devils made 9-of-10 in the closing minutes, capping a performance in which he set new career-highs with 21 points and 12 rebounds for his second consecutive double-double. He scored 16 of his 21 in the second half on 5-of-7 shooting and 6-of-8 free throws, and added two assists, two steals and a block.
