Van Crafton named WQAQ Athlete of the Week
HAMDEN — Van Crafton has been named the WQAQ Athlete of the Week for the week ending on March 7, 2007, the department announced on Wednesday.
Crafton exhibited splendid leadership in scoring 23 points on March 1 to lead the Bobcats to a 78-77 win over FDU in the NEC Quarterfinals at the TD Banknorth Sports Center. The point total ties Crafton’s season high, and included a stretch when he led the Bobcats on a 12-0 run by hitting 3 three-pointers and 3 free throws in a span of less than three minutes.
With Adam Gonzalez in a hospital bed, Crafton became the team’s de-facto leader for the game, and helped them get a spot in the semi-finals.
Quinnipiac was later bounced in that semi-final matchup vs. Sacred Heart, ending their season. The Bobcats finish their season at 14-15 overall, (11-7 NEC).
