In Wednesday's 76-73 win over Gwynedd Mercy, Cameron scored 30 points, grabbed nine rebounds, totaled five assists, and added a steal. Then, in the Wolverines' 88-84 victory at Marymount on Saturday, Cameron finished with 38 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and three steals. For the week, he averaged 34 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and two steals while shooting 55.3 percent (21-of-38) from the field, 86.4 percent (19-of-22) from the foul line and 53.8 percent (7-of-13) from three-point range. For his efforts, Cameron was also named the Atlantic East Conference Player of the Week for the fifth time this season.
