Cam Holden, Towson

Redshirt Senior | Guard | Forsyth, Georgia / Mary Person

Holden led the way in a 3-1 week for Towson with victories over Coppin State, South Alabama and Mercer. He averaged 18.8 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game. 

The guard from Georgia was just shy of a triple-double Saturday, tallying 19 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and four steals. He followed the effort with a 24-point, 10-rebound double-double on Sunday. 

Holden is tied for the league lead with two double-doubles on the year and tallied at least 14 points, five rebounds and four assists in all four games on the week for Towson. The Tigers' .875 winning percentage ranks 21st nationally.


Amar’e Marshall, Hofstra

Redshirt Freshman | Guard | Montclair, New Jersey / Roselle Catholic

Marshall is the second player to open his career with three straight CAA Rookie of the Week honors since the award was instituted 20 years ago, joining Charleston’s Reyne Smith, who began last season with four straight. 

The guard from North Jersey averaged 9.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game with double-digit scoring performances against Middle Tennessee and UNCG. 

In Friday’s game against the Blue Raiders, he recorded the fifth instance in the last 15 seasons of the same player leading Hofstra in points, rebounds and assists in one game, adding to a list of two performances by Aaron Estrada and one each from Charles Jenkins and Stevie Mejia. 

Hofstra went 2-1 in Quebec with wins over UNCG and Quinnipiac.

UNCW enters the week on a four-game winning streak, with the three most recent victories earning the Seahawks the Baha Mar title. 

The Seahawks held Missouri State to 54 points, Vermont to 66 and North Texas to 51 in the Bahamas.


Charleston’s stellar start to the season includes some hardware. The Cougars defeated Virginia Tech to win the Charleston Classic. 

The Cougars picked up wins over Davidson, Colorado State, and Virginia Tech in the event.

Charleston is 6-1 to begin the year, including wins over five NCAA Tournament teams and three defending conference champions (ACC, A10, SoCon). The lone setback was at No. 1 North Carolina.


The trio of Towson, Charleston and Hofstra has climbed to the top of the standings in the season’s early going. Towson is 7-1, Charleston is 6-1 and Hofstra is 6-2. 

The three teams have combined to defeat three defending conference champions, three preseason favorites and four Atlantic 10 members.


Three CAA teams are holding their foes under 65 points per game: Drexel (61.6), UNCW (62.8), and Towson (63.1). 

The Dragons held UT Arlington to 38 points in a win at the Gulf Coast Showcase - the fewest points a CAA team has allowed to a Division I nonconference opponent since Charleston held East Carolina to 35 in 2016.


Charleston is receiving votes in both national polls this week and slotted as high as No. 18 on one voter’s AP Top 25 ballot. 

CAA teams have 14 nonconference games against teams ranked or receiving votes in the AP poll, including three against the current top five (No. 1 Houston, No. 3 Virginia, No. 5 Purdue) and five vs. this week’s top 10.

Towson is No. 6, Charleston is No. 8 and Hofstra is No. 17 in last week’s College Insider Mid-Major Top 25, with the next poll coming Monday night. 

CAA teams will play 22 games against non-league foes ranked, or receiving votes, in that poll and have defeated five of those opponents: Kent State, Iona, Chattanooga, Vermont and Missouri State.
