He also led CMU in scoring a team-high 10 times and in rebounding a squad-best 16 times. Van tallied 18 double-figure scoring games, which is tied for a team-high and reached double digits seven times in rebounding.
The Chippewas begin the MAC Tournament on Tuesday as the No. 7 seed. They will play No. 10 seeded Eastern Michigan at noon in Quicken Loans Arena.
