York senior guard LEVI WINTERS (Manchester, Pa./Northeastern) and Gallaudet junior guard JON MOWL (Fishers, Ind./Indiana School for the Deaf) were named the Capital Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Co-Players of the Week for Feb. 4, 2008.
Winters averaged 21.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, hit 65% from the field and helped extend York’s winning streak to five games and move the Spartans into sole possession of first place with Saturday’s six-point decision at Mary Washington. After a 17- point performance in a 10-point decision over Villa Julie, Winters bounced back with 26 scores, including a 9-for-12 shooting performance, and four assists at UMW.
Mowl scored 85 points (28.3 avg.) and burried 18 three-point goals in three road games in leading the Bison to wins at Christendom and Wesley, the team’s first back-to-back wins of the season, before losing a double-overtime heartbreaker at Hood. Mowl scorched the nets for 10 long-range shots (one shy of the CAC record) and 44 total points, both Gallaudet records (originally set in 1991), in Saturday’s setback at Hood.
