    Hofstra University graduate forward Zeke Upshaw picked up his first Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) weekly award this season as the Chicago, IL native was named the Co-CAA Player of the Week.

    He shared the award with Jerrelle Benimon of Towson.

    Upshaw had a spectacular week for Hofstra as he averaged 29.5 points per game, while also chipping in with 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per outing. He played 78 out of a possible 80 minutes and started both games.

    Upshaw started the week with a 26-point effort against Delaware (81-77 loss). He drained four three-pointers against the Blue Hens, while adding three rebounds and an assist.

    He would follow up that outing with an even better game against Towson as he poured in 33 points and added four rebounds and three assists against the Tigers (83-77 loss).

    For the week he shot 46 percent from the field and hit seven three-pointers. This season he is averaging a team-high 19.4 points and has drained a team-best 75 three-pointers.

    Upshaw now has three games of 30+ points this season and in those three games he has combined to score 101 points. To put that total in perspective, he scored a total of 100 points during his entire career at Illinois State. In addition, with his two stellar outings this week, Upshaw has now scored 25 or more points seven times this season.
