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.

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.

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.
