Cal State San Bernardino junior point guard Corey Caston is getting comfortable with his new teammates. That’s bad news for the rest of the conference.
Caston has been named Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association player of the week for his performances last week that helped Cal State San Bernardino win three games and vault into first place.
Caston averaged 16.6 points, five assists and 2.6 rebounds a game as the Coyotes (10-3, 8-1) swept past Cal Poly Pomona, Cal State Los Angeles and Cal State Dominguez Hills.
CSUSB is 8-1 since Caston joined the team on Dec. 17. In those nine games, Caston has averaged 10.8 points, 5.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds a game with 17 steals and has made 88 percent of his free throws (30 of 34).
In the Coyotes’ first win on the road at Pomona since 2004, Caston had 11 points, three rebounds, eight assists and a steal. In the team’s win over the Eagles he had a season-high 20 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal.
Against the Toros on Saturday night, he was the team’s high scorer with 18 points and dished out three assists.
“He’s unguardable right now,” coach Jeff Oliver said,
