LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (Nov. 12, 2018) – Sophomore guard Gokul Srinivasaragavan (San Ramon, Calif. / Dougherty Valley) of the Caltech men's basketball team has been named SCIAC Defensive Player of the Week for his role in the Beavers' opening night victory over Oberlin College on Saturday.
Srinivasaragavan came up big on a number of defensive stops and closeouts, with the most memorable of his two steals requiring a second effort to break past the defender and take the ball all the way for an easy two points. Both of the sophomore's rebounds came on the defensive end as well. Srinivasaragavan also chipped in with 10 points, one of four Caltech players to hit double-figures.
Srinivasaragavan and the Beavers will return to home floor on Friday, Nov. 11 when they play Occidental College in the annual 110 Rivalry game.
