Cal Poly Pomona guard Mitchel Anderson has been named the California Collegiate Athletic Association’s (CCAA) men’s basketball Player of the Week for the week of Jan. 23-29.

It marks the second time this season he has been honored.

Anderson, a junior from Temecula, averaged 21 points on 68.0 percent (17-for-25) shooting and 7.0 rebounds to lead the Broncos to a pair of home wins over UC San Diego and Cal State San Bernardino that kept Cal Poly Pomona tied atop the CCAA standings.

During a 58-50 victory over the Tritons on Thursday, Anderson scored a career-high 25 points on 9-of-13 shooting, including 2-of-5 from 3-point range and collected eight rebounds. He came back on Saturday to score 17 points, total six rebounds and three assists in a 67-54 win over Cal State San Bernardino.

Cal Poly Pomona is next in action on Friday when it travels to Chico State for a 7:30 p.m. contest.
