The sophomore from Winsor, Conn. averaged 17.0 points and 8.0 rebounds per game in two games this past week, helping the Catawba Valley men’s basketball team defeat both the Limestone JV and rival Caldwell CC&TI men’s basketball teams.

Powell, a 6-foot-7 forward, scored a season-high 18 points in a thrilling 86-84 win against the Saints last Sunday and answered with a 16-point performance against the Cobras in a 90-82 victory.

He currently ranks second on the team with 11.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game this season, helping CVCC start 2018-19 with a 6-1 record — its best start to a season since the 2012-13 campaign.
