Providence, RI - Brown senior guard Damon Huffman (Petoskey, Mich.) was named the Ivy League Player of the Week after having a big week for the Bears, scoring 20 or more points in games against Notre Dame, Army and American.

Huffman opened the week by scoring a game-high 21 points at Notre Dame, connecting on six-of-12 field goals, including five-of-eight from behind the three-point arc.

Trailing by one point on the road against Army, Huffman's 10-foot jump shot with 1.7 seconds remaining lifted the Bears to a 79-78 win over the Cadets. He finished with a team-high 23 points against Army, shooting six-of-nine from the field and four-of-seven from three-point range.

Huffman finished the week with a season-high 29 points in Brown's 68-55 win at home over American, hitting nine-of-13 field goals, including three-of-four from behind the three-point arc.

For the week, Huffman averaged 23.4 points per game and made 21-of-34 field goals, 12-of-19 treys and 19-of-23 free throws, helping Brown to its eight non-league win of the season, the second most non-league wins in Brown basketball history.

Huffman scored his 1,000th career point against Notre Dame, the 20th Brown player to reach the 1,000 point milestone, and now has 1,060 career points, 16th best in the Brown record book.
