CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Freshman guard Elijah Wilson of the Coastal Carolina men's basketball team was named the Crons Brand Big South Freshman of the Week, the league announced on Monday. The honor is Wilson's second weekly honor in a Coastal uniform.
Wilson led the Chants as he averaged 19.5 points and 6.0 rebounds in two wins last week. He opened with 17 points and five rebounds at Presbyterian, as he was 7-of-12 from the field and 3-of-7 from long range. In CCU's win at Radford, Wilson scored a game-high 22 points and hit three 3-pointers, while going 5-of-6 from the charity stripe. He scored 17 of his 22 points in the second half, and made four free throws in the final minute of play to help preserve the victory.
The Chants return to action Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. as they host Liberty in a key Big South Conference contest.
