Canty Snags C-USA Freshman of the Week Honor
The weekly awards are chosen by a media panel representing the 16 member schools.
This marks the first weekly honor in Canty’s career and the 11th Freshman of the Week honor in program history. The last player for the Thundering Herd to receive the honor was DeAndre Kane, who did so for the week of Feb. 7, 2011.
Over the two-game week, Canty averaged 17.0 points and 4.5 assists 33.5 minutes. Against WKU, Canty ranked second on the team in scoring with 15, before scoring 19 and recording six assists in a losing effort to ETSU (Nov. 30).
Ranking sixth in the nation in assists per game (7.3) and ninth in the country in total steals (51), Canty has helped the Herd greatly from the point position.
Marshall will continue its four-game span away from the Cam Henderson Center at Vanderbilt, Thursday, Dec. 5 at 8 p.m.
