LA JOLLA, Calif. - UC San Diego's James McCann (Carlsbad/La Costa Canyon HS) has been named the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Men's Basketball Player of the Week. The announcement was made Tuesday morning by the league.

McCann helped lead UCSD to a pair of CCAA wins last week at home, averaging a double-double with 12.5 points and 10 assists.

In an 80-59 win against Cal State Dominguez Hills, the senior guard totaled 12 points, making three of four shots from the field and all six of his free throws. He also added five rebounds and 10 assists, one short of his career high.

The next night, McCann played all 40 minutes in a 70-66 topping of Cal State L.A. He finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and another 10 assists while draining five of six free throws.

Over the two contests, McCann hit a team-best 92 percent of his free throws and was second on the team with his 12 boards.

McCann's 20 assists left him with 411 for his career, just four short of claiming UCSD's Division II (since the 2000-01 season) career record. Clint Allard currently holds the mark, totaling 414 helpers between 2004 and 2008.

McCann is the second Triton to earn the league's weekly award this season as sophomore forward Drew Dyer won it on Nov. 25, 2013.

UCSD (9-7 overall, 5-7 CCAA) hosts Cal Poly Pomona (13-3, 11-1) Friday and Humboldt State (8-10, 3-9) Saturday. Both games tip off at 7:30 p.m. at RIMAC Arena.
