PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Providence College senior guard John Linehan (Chester, Pa.) was named BIG EAST Men's Basketball Co-Player of the Week on Monday, January 28. Linehan shares the honor with Darius Rice of Miami. Linehan was named Co-Player of the Week after he averaged 13 points, 8.5 steals and 5.0 assists in the Friars' two BIG EAST wins last week.
On January 22, Linehan registered a Providence College and BIG EAST single-game record 11 steals in PC's 70-55 win against Rutgers at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. Linehan broke the Conference record of 10 steals established by Allen Iverson of Georgetown against Miami on January 13, 1996. The Providence College record of 10 steals in a game was set by God Shammgod on December 21, 1996 against Brown.
On January 26, Linehan scored a team-high 19 points and registered a game-high six steals in the Friars' 75-70 overtime win against St. John's at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Linehan now ranks ninth all-time in NCAA history with 335 career steals in 112 games. He ranks second on the BIG EAST all-time steal list with 181. Linehan is 17 steals shy of breaking the BIG EAST career steal mark of 197 established by former Friar Eric Murdock (1987-91).
Linehan leads the team and the BIG EAST in steals with 89 in 21 games this season. He also ranks second in the nation in steals, averaging 4.2 per game. This season, he is averaging 11.6 points and 4.5 assists per game.
Linehan, who concluded his high school career at the Winchendon School, is the son of Elizabeth Linehan and Mike Shaw.
The Friars, 12-9, return to action against West Virginia University on January 30 in Morgantown, W.Va. at 7:00 p.m.
