Cahiem Brown has played a large role in the success of the Georgia Highlands College men's basketball team so far this season.
The 6-foot-5 guard has helped the Chargers embark on an eight-game winning streak, most recently capped with a 107-93 win Saturday against Southern Crescent Technical College at home.
For his efforts, Brown was named the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Men's Player of the Week.
Brown scored 22 points off the bench for the Chargers in the win against Southern Crescent Tech and had three steals.
In their conference opener, the Chargers stopped Andrew College 86-79 at home with Brown scoring 23 points. Brown also had five rebounds and five assists over the two games.
Brown is third in scoring for the Chargers (11-4, 1-0 GCAA) with an average of 12.4 points per game. He's behind Trevin Wade with 19.2 points and Carl Johnson with 15.2 points per game.
The women's team didn't play over the weekend, but were awarded a win over Southern Crescent Tech by forfeit.
Ja'Lyn Reese leads the GHC women in scoring with 17.2 points per game, and Jahnaria Brown follows with 15.1 points per game.
Both men's and women's teams will be at home Saturday when they welcome South Georgia Technical College to their home court. South Georgia Tech is leading the conference in both men's and women's action.
This will be the first time the men's team has faced the conference opponents this season, while the Lady Chargers (10-7, 5-1) will try to avenge an 87-65 loss back in November. The loss has been the only conference loss for the GHC women.
