Michael Schantz Cops ECAC Player of the Week Honor

Senior forward Michael Schantz (Sharon, MA/Sharon) has earned Player of the Week honors from the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) for the Division III Upstate New York region for the fifth time this season. Schantz also was honored by the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) as Player of the Week for that competitive conference.

Schantz has led the NESCAC in scoring and rebounding all season, and he added to his numbers in a week in which the Continentals went 2-1, with the only loss coming in a disappointing 74-78 loss to Trinity College. Schantz averaged 27.7 points and 14 rebounds per game while shooting 64% from the floor.

He posted back-to-back double-doubles with 27 points and 18 rebounds against Hobart before scoring 27 points with 15 caroms against Trinity. Schantz capped off the week with 29 markers and nine boards in a rout of Amherst.

Schantz leads Hamilton in scoring (24.6 points per game) and rebounding (13.8 rebounds per game) and has moved into the number four spot in Continentals' career scoring with 1,880 points. With seven more regular-season games left on the schedule, Schantz could finish his career as high as second on Hamilton's all-time scoring list.

The Continentals show an overall ledger of 12-5, and a conference record (Upstate Collegiate Athletic Association) of 8-3 with one more UCAA game to play – Skidmore College tomorrow night at Scott Field House in Clinton, NY.
