While the Cleveland Cavaliers haven't lit up the win-loss column this season and are out of playoff contention with just three games to go, that hasn't stopped former Alabama standout Collin Sexton from lighting up the box score each and every night.
In his last five games, Sexton has recorded at least 24 points and four assists.
In three of those five contests, he has dished out at least seven assists. The Atlanta, Ga. product's notable performances this last week came against the Pheonix Suns, where he dropped 29 points, grabbed seven rebounds and passed for seven assists, and in two games versus the Dallas Mavericks, he averaged nearly 26 points six assists.
On Monday night against the Indiana Pacers, he tied a game-high 25 points and eight assists in the 111-102 defeat.
Sexton has reached the 20-point mark in at least 18 of his last 19 outings. His 24.4 points per game mark is good for 18th in the entire league.
This is the eighth time this season that Sexton has been named the BamaCentral Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week.
- Former Crimson Tide pitcher Tommy Hunter made his New York Mets debut this past week. He appeared in two games and threw four scoreless innings and struck out one batter.
