Junior guard honored after averaging 19.0 points, 4.0 rebounds in two games last week

Junior guard Karvel Anderson of the Robert Morris University men's basketball team earned the first weekly honor of his career Monday, as he was tabbed the Northeast Conference Co-Player of the Week.
 
Anderson shares the honor with Jason Brickman of LIU Brooklyn after averaging 19.0 points and 4.0 rebounds last week while shooting 63.6 percent (14-for-22) from the field, including 62.5 percent (10-for-16) from beyond the arc, in leading the Colonials to a 1-1 record.


Anderson opened the week by supplying 10 points and four rebounds in a 61-52 setback at Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) preseason favorite Savannah State (11/26/12).
 
Five nights later, Anderson put forth one of the most impressive shooting nights in school history in an 84-76 victory over previously unbeaten Ohio (12/1/12) of the Mid-American Conference (MAC) at the Charles L. Sewall Center.
 
Anderson led the way against the Bobcats with a career-high 28 points on perfect 10-for-10 shooting from the floor, including an 8-for-8 performance from beyond the arc, while also grabbing four rebounds in the victory.
 
In the RMU record book, Anderson is the first student-athlete in school history to post a perfect shooting night from the field with as many as 10 field goals. Former Colonial Rob Robinson (2008-10) held the old mark when he finished 9-for-9 shooting from the floor in a 104-56 win over Wagner Jan. 17, 2009, at the Sewall Center.
 
Anderson is also just the second student-athlete in school history to convert eight field goals from beyond the arc without a miss. Former Colonial Scott Shepherd (1988-91) also finished 8-for-8 from deep in a 110-80 win over LIU Brooklyn Feb. 8, 1990, at the Sewall Center.

On the 2012-13 campaign, Anderson is averaging 12.0 points per game to rank second for Robert Morris while shooting 46.7 percent (35-for-75) from the field, including 40 percent (18-for-45) from beyond the arc.
 
Led by third-year head coach Andrew Toole, the Colonials open a two-game road swing Tuesday, Dec. 4, with a 7:00 p.m. tip against Campbell at Gore Arena in Buies Creek, N.C. RMU will also visit Hampton Saturday, Dec. 8, for a 2;00 p.m. tip before returning home to the Sewall Center to host Duquesne Saturday, Dec. 15.
