Tennessee Sports Writers Honor Fisk's Lewis
February 14, 2014By Scott Wallace of Fisk University
NASHVILLE- The honors keep rolling in for Fisk University men's basketball player Cameron Lewis. This week the Tennessee Sports Writer's Association (TSWA) named him their player of the week for games between February 2-8. Lewis is the second Bulldog this season to receive the honor as Lady Bulldog basketball player Stevonna Scott won it November 26, 2013
"The honor is well deserved," said Fisk Head Coach Jay Smith. "Cam has been playing lights outs since after the Christmas break. With our All-American Darrell Miller being out, he has picked up the scoring load. He started this week with a career high 40 points so he is on his way to get another weekly honor this week."
Lewis, a junior from John Overton High School in Nashville, started the week with 29 points, 10 rebounds and four assists in an 89-84 victory against Oakwood University, connecting on 10-of-24 shots overall and 8-of-12 attempts at the foul line. The 6-foot-3 guard then registered his second triple-double of the year with 19 points, 10 boards and 11 assists versus Edward Waters College, hitting three 3-pointers. He added three blocks against the EWC as well.
On January 21, Lewis was named the NAIA National Division I Player of the Week. He has also been named Player of the Week for the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference. Lewis is leading the GCAC in points per game (23.6), assists (5.8) and steals (2.8). He ranks fourth nationally in points, fifth in steals, sixth in assists and 20th in rebounds nationally per game.
