Gardner-Webb's Jaheam Cornwall named Big South Freshman of the Week

Big honor for Gardner-Webb's Jaheam Cornwall as he was named the Big South Conference Freshman of the Week.

Cornwall came off the bench in both games for the Runnin' Bulldogs last week to average 16 points per contest.

In a game against Radford last Thursday, the freshman guard had a career high 19 points on 4 of 5 shooting.  He also went a perfect 8 for 8 from the free throw line.

Then in Saturday's game against Charleston Southern, Cornwall had 14 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists.

For the week, Cornwall hit 6 three pointers on 10 shots.

Gardner-Webb is currently 7-5 in conference play which puts them 4th in the standing.
