Brown senior guard Pat Powers (Stamford, CT) was named the Ivy League's Player of the Week after scoring 23 points vs. Cornell and a career high 34 points in a win over Columbia this past weekend.
Powers scored 23 points, all in the second half, and grabbed a career high 10 rebounds against the Big Red. He came back to score 25 of his 34 points in the first half against Columbia. His previous career high came against Navy last year when he posted 32 points.
Powers' 25 first half points against the Lions were the most since Earl Hunt '03 tallied 30 points in the first session against Harvard on January 15, 2000, on his way to 39 points against the Crimson.
In two games last week, Powers connected on 9 of 13 treys, 10 of 11 free throws and 19 of 35 shots from the field, while pulling down 17 rebounds.
The former St. Luke's High School (New Canaan, CT) standout ranks eighth in the Ivy League in scoring with 13.8 points per game. He is Brown's second leading rebounder with 5.1 rebounds per game.
