Cartwright earned the honor after scoring a game-high 22 points at No. 5 Pitt on Saturday. That total was the game high and came from his scorching shooting performance (7-of-8 on field goals including 3-of-4 from three-point land, 5-of-6 foul shooting). Earlier in the week, Cartwright had seven points, five rebounds and two assists in the Quakers' 74-65 victory over Lafayette.
Currently Cartwright is third on the team in scoring, averaging 10.8 points per game, and he has a team-leading six steals to go with nine assists and three blocked shots. Penn (2-3) is in action twice this week, hosting UMBC on Tuesday night before meeting Army at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J. on Saturday.
