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, December 15. Villanova's Curtis Sumpter also earned Player of the Week accolades. For Gomes, who earned Preseason First Team All-BIG EAST honors, it marked the second time in his career that he received BIG EAST Player of the Week honors.
Gomes was named Co-Player of the Week after he scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the Friars' only game last week -- a 70-51 win over 14th-ranked Illinois on December 9 at Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden. Gomes, who recorded his second double-double of the season and the 22nd of his career, led the Friars to their first win over a ranked team since February 10, 2001. He also became the 36th player in Providence men's basketball history to score 1,000 or more points when he hit an eight-foot jump shot with 56 seconds remaining in the first half. Gomes reached the 1,000-point plateau in his 61st game as Friar. He ties John Egan as the 10th fastest Friar to reach 1,000 points. Gomes leads the Friars in scoring (19.2 ppg) and rebounding (8.8 rpg). He has hit 30 or his 34 free throws this season and has one of the top percentages in BIG EAST (.882).
Gomes, who played for three seasons at Wilby High School, is the son of Teresa Gomes and John Brooks.
The Friars, 4-1, return to action against Central Connecticut on Sunday, December 21 at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. at 3:00 p.m. on Cox 3.
