#CAAHoops Weekly - Feb. 22 Edition
This week's edition of #CAAHoops Weekly starts with a look back at Northeastern's exciting 66-64 victory over James Madison last Wednesday that clinched at least a share of the CAA regular-season title for the Huskies. Bobby Broyles and Rob Washburn also review Delaware’s 73-71 double-overtime win over rival Drexel on Thursday.
They then look ahead to the weekend, which includes a pair matchups between teams near the top of the league standings. William & Mary takes its three-game winning streak to George Mason on Saturday in a regionally televised contest on Comcast SportsNet, and James Madison entertains Georgia State on Senior Day in Harrisonburg.
#CAAHoops Weekly features an interview with Towson junior forward Jerrelle Benimon, who leads the CAA and ranks second in the nation with 18 double-doubles this season. The Georgetown transfer is among the CAA's top 10 in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots.
Broyles and Washburn then shift their focus to the women's hoops side where they review Towson's 69-60 victory over Hofstra that gave the Tigers their second straight win after a 1-11 start in CAA play. They also look back on Old Dominion's 75-64 triumph over rival William & Mary on Thursday, which featured "Barefootin Night" as ODU coach Karen Barefoot helped raise awareness for the Samaritan's Feet charity.
#CAAHoops Weekly moves into preview mode on the women's side and focuses on the rematch between the top two teams in the standings. James Madison visits Delaware in a game that will be televised on Comcast SportsNet at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. The contest features four of the CAA's top backcourt stars in UD's Elena Delle Donne and Lauren Carra and JMU's Tarik Hislop and Kirby Burkholder. The game will also be part of Play4Kay initiative that all 11 CAA women's basketball teams have taken part in to help raise funds to fight breast cancer.
