[December 20, 2012]  Brady Cremeens, Lincoln Christian University's men's basketball shooting guard, recently received the NCCAA Division II Men's Basketball Athlete of the Week award for the week of Dec. 10-16.

The award recognizes outstanding play by NCCAA II member players across the nation each week. During the week of Dec. 10-16, Cremeens and the Red Lions played St. Louis Christian College and Holy Cross College. LCU beat SLCC 87-44 and lost to HCC 87-58.

In the St. Louis Christian game, Cremeens posted his first double-double of the season, putting up 21 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. In LCU's loss to Holy Cross, Cremeens was able to score 23 points, take four rebounds and offer three assists. He averaged 22 points, seven rebounds and 2.5 assists per game for the week. So far this season, Cremeens is leading the Red Lions' offensive attack with an average 22.5 points per game.

Cremeens is a senior at Lincoln Christian University, where he is working toward a bachelor's degree in communications. A graduate of Olympia High School, Stanford, he is the son of Robert and Laura Cremeens of Hopedale.

This is the second time this year that a Lincoln Christian University student-athlete was recognized for the NCCAA Athlete of the Week award. Women's soccer player Moriah Kirkpatrick, a junior, was recognized in September.
