Millbrook's last two starting point guards each received Big South Player of the Week merits on Monday as part of a stellar showing from Wildcat alumni.
Jordan Whitfield ('17) came off the bench to score a career-high 12 points on 4-of-6 threes with 2 rebounds and an assist (and no turnovers) in Campbell's win at Gardner-Webb. He then started in the Camels win Saturday over Longwood and tallied 11 points (3-6 three's) and matched his career high with 4 assists in a career-best 32 minutes.
Whitfield, who scored 759 points in two seasons at Millbrook, was selected as the Big South's Freshman of the Week.
Chris Clemons ('15) averaged 29 points, and helped Campbell into a tie for third place in the conference standings with a pair of wins. Along the way, he became the first junior ever to reach 2,000 career points in Big South history, moving by Doug Day into 10th place on the conference's all-time scoring list.
Clemons had 33 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists, while fueling a late 11-0 run to lead the Camels to a 78-70 win at Gardner-Webb Wednesday. He then scored 25 points, grabbed 8 rebounds; dealt 3 assists and committed no turnovers in 28 minutes of an 88-54 win Saturday over Longwood.
For a third time this season, Clemons was named the Big South's Player of the Week. He is now the second all-time leading scorer in Millbrook and Campbell basketball history.
In the midst of a three-game road swing, Trejon Jacob ('16) averaged 19.0 points per game this past week to extend his streak of double-figure games to four.
The Florida International sophomore grabbed eight rebounds and poured in 16 points on Thursday night against Marshall, then for the sixth time this season, Jacob eclipsed 20+ points in a game as he went 4-of-6 from downtown in a 22 point showing on Saturday against Western Kentucky.
Jacob is averaging 15.1 points per game, and has made 24 starts in his first season at the Division-I level. He played two seasons at Millbrook and totaled 657 career points.
Faison Brock ('16) averaged a double-double this week as USC Aiken picked up a pair of victories to snap a four-game skid.
In a 91-74 win over Flager on Wednesday, Brock showed off his stroke from beyond the arc, hitting five of his seven three-point attempts for a total of 15 points. Brock grabbed six rebounds, all from the defensive boards.
On Saturday, the glass was Brock's as he pulled in 13 rebounds, one short of his season-high, in an 84-69 win over Georgia Southwestern. Only six points fell for the sophomore, but two came on this put-back jam to increase the Aiken lead to double-digits late.
Brock has started every game this season, and is averaging 10.2 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest. He totaled 788 points and 673 rebounds while earning three varsity letters at Millbrook. He has the program record for most charges, and most rebounds in a career.
In the professional ranks, Tyrrel Tate ('10) made the most of the Cleveland Cavaliers deadline transactions as he earned 26 minutes for the G-League's Canton Charge. After totaling two points in 16 combined minutes of action in the month of January, Tate posted a combined 13 points in the Charge's two losses to Windy City.
On Friday night, he tied his season-high in rebounds with three, and on Saturday he set a season-high in points scored with 11 after hitting 5-of-6 from the free throw line, and downing 3-of-9 field goals. Tate also lead Canton in +/- on Saturday with a +13.
Tyrrel is currently in his second G-League stint, and is averaging 2.7 points, and 1.7 rebounds in 18 games (five starts). Tate lettered twice at Millbrook, and scored 657 career points.
