The nation’s best comeback story continues to write its own chapters as Hofstra freshman Kvonn Cramer earned his third Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Week award this season, it was announced this morning by the conference office.
Cramer previously earned the rookie award on December 7 and December 28.
Cramer had a 1,366-day injury layoff entering this season between his last high school game on March 5, 2017, and his Pride debut on November 29, 2020. That ranks as the longest layoff in the nation this year since a player’s last game (high school or college).
It was another outstanding week for Cramer as he averaged 16.5 points and 10 rebounds per game in helping the Pride to a sweep of UNCW.
On Saturday, in an 82-73 win over the Seahawks, he posted a career-high-tying 16 points and added nine rebounds to assist in the winning effort. He was 7-10 from the field and drained a three-pointer as well.
On Sunday in the 89-83 victory over UNCW, he did one better and not only set a new career-high with 17 points but tallied his third double-double of the season with 11 rebounds. He was 7-11 from the field in the game and added three blocks and a pair of steals.
For the week he shot 14-21 (67%) from the field.
This season he is averaging 9.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game for Hofstra (11-6, 7-3 CAA), which has won five straight games. He ranks second on the team in rebounding and fourth in scoring.
