Matt Cavalieri: Men's Basketball

Matt Cavalieri
Matt Cavalieri has been selected the Springfield College Male Maroon Club Athlete of the Week after a standout opening game performance for the men's basketball team over the weekend.

Cavalieri, who hails from West Warwick, R.I., nearly led the Pride to an upset victory over Rhode Island College on Saturday. Cavalieri scored a career-high and game-high 21 points and added a game-high 12 rebounds.

The junior tri-captain made several key plays down the stretch for the Pride. Cavalieri made a rebound-lay-up with nine seconds left to cut the lead to three points. Following a foul that sent Rhode Island College to foul line, Cavalieri pulled a down key defensive rebound on the front end of a 1-and-1 with eight seconds left to give the Pride one final look to try and send the game into overtime.

Cavalieri and the Pride will look to pick up their first win of the season when they travel to Salem State on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
