Dec. 12, 2005

WORCESTER, Mass. - Sophomore Tim Clifford (Walpole, Mass.) has been named the Holiday Inn Express Crusader of the Week, for competition from December 5-11. Clifford led the Holy Cross men's basketball team to a 64-41 victory over Brown in its only game last week.

In the Brown game, Clifford led the Crusaders with a career-high 21 points. He made nine of 12 field goal attempts, including the first three-point attempt of his collegiate career, and was also a perfect two of two on the free throw line. In addition, Clifford had a season-high four blocked shots, while his seven rebounds were his second-highest total of the season.

In eight games played this season, Clifford is now averaging 5.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots per contest.

Holy Cross (4-4 overall) returns to action next Monday, Dec. 19, when it takes on Chattanooga in the opening round of the San Juan Shootout, which will take place at the Mario Morales Coliseum in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.

Please note that there will be no Holiday Inn Express Crusader of the Week selection next week (Dec. 19), as all Holy Cross teams are off due to final exams. The next Holiday Inn Express Crusader of the Week selection will be announced on Dec. 26.
