PASADENA (Jan. 12, 2017) – Senior wing David Kawashima (Studio City, Calif. / North Hollywood) of the Caltech men's basketball team is the 12th Caltech scholar-athlete to be featured in the episodic web series, Beaver of the Week.
Kawashima is coming off of a career-high 25 points against visiting California Lutheran University in perhaps the men's basketball team's most exciting game of the season. Trailing by 26 points at halftime and at one point by as many as 28 points, the Beavers clawed their way back into the game and forced overtime on a game-tying shot just before the buzzer. The senior finished the game 10-for-16 from the field and came away with six assists, four rebounds and two steals. He is averaging 9.1 points per game and 4.1 rebounds per game, starring in a variety of different roles for his team this season.
