"Quayshaun Mitchell (Harlem, N.Y.) repeats as the NEAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week after a clutch performance for the SUNY Polytechnic Institute Wildcats. The senior forward led the Wildcats to a thrilling 63-61 victory over Coe College Sunday during game one of the two-day Cruzin' Classic being held in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Mitchell scored a game-high 21 points on the day, 16 of which came in the second half and his final three points coming on a clutch set of plays to close the contest. Mitchell swiped a steal with 21 seconds left and the Wildcats trailing by one, before completing an and-1 play four seconds later when he hit a jumper and sunk the subsequent free throw to give Poly a 63-61 lead and ultimately the victory. Mitchell also finished the win with eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block to round out another strong performance after also being last week's NEAC Player of the Week. The Wildcats improved to 5-3 overall and will close the Cruzin' Classic with a matchup against Wartburg Monday night."
