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, March 1. Seton Hall's Andre Barrett also earned Player of the Week accolades. For Gomes, it marks the fifth time in his career and fourth time this season that he received BIG EAST Player of the Week honors. Gomes joins former Friar Jamel Thomas (four times in 1999) as the only players at Providence to earn BIG EAST Player of the Week four times in one season.
Gomes is third in the BIG EAST in scoring (19.6 ppg), third in rebounding (9.9 rpg) and second in free-throw percentage (.879).
Gomes led Providence to a 2-0 record last week in two BIG EAST road games. He posted a double-double in both games and averaged 22.0 points and 11.5 rebounds. He also shot 16-30 (.533) overall from the field, 2-5 (.400) from three-point territory and 10-12 (.833) from the free-throw line. On February 24, Gomes registered a game-high 25 points and 12 rebounds in a 73-59 win at Notre Dame. Gomes scored 23 of his 25 points in the second half to lead the Friars to victory. On February 29, he recorded 19 points and 11 rebounds in just 25 minutes of action in a 103-78 win at St. John's. It was his 12th double-double of the season.
Gomes, who played for three seasons at Wilby High School, is the son of Teresa Gomes and John Brooks.
The Friars, 20-5 (11-3), return to action against Pittsburgh on March 2 at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. at 7:30 p.m..
