James Named ACCAC Player of the Week

Gila Monster freshman Mike James played a vital role in two conference victories last week for the Eastern Arizona College men’s basketball team. For his efforts, James has been named the ACCAC Player-of-the-Week.

In a 102-77 victory over visiting Pima Wednesday night, James tallied 16 points, seven assists, and four rebounds. He made four three-pointers and both of his free throws, which accounted for most of his offensive production.

James followed it up with an even better performance Saturday night in a 103-102 win over first-place Cochise College. He had 18 points and seven assists, going 8-for-17 from the floor.

With the two victories, the Monsters (15-9 overall, 9-7 ACCAC) sit in fourth place and currently hold the final playoff spot on the Division I side of the ACCAC. They have now won four straight games and eight of their last nine.

Next up for EAC this week is a road game at South Mountain Wednesday night and a home game against Phoenix on Saturday. Both are set to tip off at 7:30 p.m.
