Men's Athlete of the Week award goes to City's Lambert
JAN. 19, 2015 - San Diego City College basketball player Stacey Lambert has been named Pacific Coast Athletic Conference men's Athlete of the Week for the seven-day period that concluded Sunday.
Lambert, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward from Castle Park High School, led City College to an 83-73 win over district rival San Diego Mesa with 16 points and 10 rebounds. He went 4-for-4 on field goals and was 8-for-10 from the free throw line.
Lambert's performance helped the Knights remain in a tie for the PCAC Southern Division lead with Southwestern. The two teams play at Southwestern on Wednesday to close out the first round.
Honorable mention selections are Southwestern basketball player Richard Grove, Cuyamaca basketball player Tim Pace, MiraCosta basketball player Buddah Boyd (who shared the AOTW honor last week) and Palomar basketball player Jeremy Franklin.
Grove, a 6-foot-2 freshman guard from Utica High School in Utica, Minnesota, led the Jaguars past Cuyamaca 80-71 by scoring 21 points.
Pace, a 6-foot-4 sophomore guard from Tottenville High School in Huguenot, Staton Island, New York, scored 22 points and grabbed 5 rebounds against Southwestern.
Boyd, a 6-foot-4 freshman small forward from Killeen (Texas) High School and a U.S. Air Force veteran, was not eligible to win the award twice in the same season but played a huge role as the Spartans defeated Mt. San Jacinto 80-75 with 29 points and 8 rebounds. MiraCosta and Palomar are tied for the Northern Division lead going into the final game of the first round against each other on Wednesday at Palomar.
