Freshman, Senior Hoops Players Tabbed Super Crusaders

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Rookie men’s basketball player Harley Sellinger (Mill Hall, Pa./Central Mountain) and senior basketball player Samantha Cartwright (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) were named the Super Crusaders for the week ending Feb. 6. It marks Sellinger’s first honor of the year while it is the second of the season for Cartwright.

Sellinger finished the weekend with a combined 17 points in two starts. He finished with six points and five rebounds in a two-point loss at USMMA and followed that with an 11-point performance at Drew. Against the Rangers, he also pulled down six rebounds, three of which were of the offensive variety, while chipping in one block.

Through the team’s 22 games, Sellinger is the Crusaders’ leading rebounder, averaging 6.2 per game to go along with nearly eight points per outing. He is also shooting at a 59 percent clip from the floor and has a team-high 11 blocks, the only SU player in double figures in that category.

Cartwright, meanwhile, averaged 16 points per game as SU went 1-1 over the weekend. The Crusaders captured a 64-62 win over USMMA, in which Cartwright added 12 points, six rebounds, four assists two blocks and one steal. The following day, Susquehanna fell to Drew, but Cartwright scored a game-high 21 points to go along with eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal.

This season, Cartwright has started all 19 games in which she has appeared. She is averaging 8.8 points per game to go along with 5.4 rebounds per game, the second-best average on the team. Cartwright is also clutch at the free throw line, sinking 90 percent of her attempts, and is tied for the team lead with 16 blocks.
