PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Providence College junior forward Ryan Gomes (Waterbury, Conn.) was named BIG EAST men's basketball Co-Player of the Week on Monday, January 5. Syracuse's Billy Edelin also earned Player of the Week accolades. For Gomes, who earned Preseason First Team All-BIG EAST honors, it marked the third time in his career and second time this season that he received BIG EAST Player of the Week honors.
Gomes was named Co-Player of the Week after he recorded his fifth double-double of the season and third consecutive in the Friars' 84-69 win at ACC foe Virginia on January 3. It was the only game last week for the Friars. Gomes recorded a game-high 27 points and a game-high 11 rebounds for the Friars. He also shot 5-6 from the free-throw line and made four steals. For Gomes, it was the 26th double-double of his career. He has reached double-figures in scoring in 23 consecutive games. He also has reached double figures in scoring in 55 of his 65 career games and 41 of his last 42 contests. His 27 points against Virginia marked the fifth time this season and the 23rd time in his career that he has scored 20 or more points in a game. It also was the seventh time in his career that he scored 25 or more points in a game. He also has had 10 or more rebounds in 27 of his 65 games and 15 or more rebounds in six games at Providence. Gomes, who is averaging a double-double for the season, leads the Friars in scoring (19.6 ppg) and rebounding (10.2 rpg).
Gomes, who played for three seasons at Wilby High School, is the son of Teresa Gomes and John Brooks.
The Friars, 8-1, return to action tonight against nationally ranked Texas at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN.
