NASHVILLE- The Gulf Coast Athletic Conference announced yesterday that Fisk University basketball players Cameron Lewis and Stevonna Scott were named GCAC players of the week. This is the first time since joining the conference that both teams had a player to share the honor in the same week.
Lewis, a junior from Nashville’s John Overton High School averaged 25.7 points, 11.7 rebounds and 6.0 assists in three games last week. His best game was against Tennessee Temple when he got his first triple double for the season (32 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists.) Lewis is leading the GCAC in scoring with a 22.0 average per game. He also leads in steals with 3.0 per game. Teammate Darrell Miller was also named this season to the honor on November 18th.
“We didn’t play well tonight but it is good to be honored,” said Lewis after the Middle Tennessee State game on Monday. “The team has worked hard so it’s good to be recognized. I was passed over for the preseason team so this was good to accomplish. We have a couple of tough games this week so I will celebrate this for a moment then it is on to prepare for Bethel.”
For Scott this is the second time she has won the award this season. For the week she averaged 29.7 points in three games. The 5’9 junior from Chattanooga has scored at least 30 points in seven of the first 11 games in the season so far. She is also leading the NAIA Division I in scoring with a 30.6 average. The Lady Bulldogs are off until early January.
“This is a team award to be honest,” said Scott. “They have made it easy for me to get off shots. Coach (Tony Thompson) talks a lot about us playing our roles. Cori (Foreman) is a great rebounder, Janine (Davis) passes the ball well and when teams concentrate on me she hits shots. Rashida (Ademosu) drives to the lane well and hits open shots. The rest of the team knows how to stick to their role too. They named me player of the week, but I couldn’t do it without them. We want to come out of the gate strong in January. I am resting and getting work in until we get back.”
