CALDWELL, NJ - Dawan Lighty, a freshman guard on the Men’s Cougar Basketball Team at Caldwell College, has been selected by the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) as Rookie of the Week for men’s basketball, the league announced today.

This is the second rookie award this season for Lighty, who also received the honor on Dec. 18.

Last Wednesday while playing against Felician College, Lighty scored a career-high 22 points while also making four of his six attempts at three-pointers. He scored 7 of his 11 attempts from the floor, and made all four of his free throw attempts.
