PASADENA, Calif. (Dec. 31, 2014) – Caltech men's basketball senior Andrew Hogue (Arroyo Grande, Calif. / Arroyo Grande) has been named the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Athlete of the Week for Dec. 23.
Hogue led Caltech to its first win of the season in a third straight overtime game against Mt. Aloysius College just before the Winter Recess. The veteran averaged 13.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks over the Beavers' two games that week. He went 3-for-6 from downtown against Transylvania University and sank the game-tying free throws on the final possession in regulation to force overtime, where he netted six of Caltech's 10 points to force a second OT period.
This marks the second straight year that a men's basketball player has been named the SCIAC Athlete of the Week, with Bryan Joel (Bethesda, Md. / Walt Whitman) having earned the honor last Dec. 19. Hogue becomes the third Caltech student-athlete to be recognized this academic year, joining men's soccer sophomore John David Feist (Dallas, Texas / Jesuit College Prep) and women's basetball sophomore Kate Lewis (San Antonio, Texas / Ronald Reagan).
