Senior guard Patrick Powers (Stamford, CT), the Ivy League's sixth leading scorer, has been named a CoSIDA District I Academic All-American. Powers, along with four other district winners, will be placed on the national All-American ballot.

A History concentrator at Brown, Powers carries a 3.38 grade point average.

Powers is considered one of the most explosive offensive players in the Ivy League. He is averaging 14.4 points per game overall, and 16.8 points per game in Ivy games, third best in the league. He exploded for a career high 34 points vs. Columbia, including 25 first half points, and scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds vs. Cornell in being named the Ivy League's Player of the Week.

An excellent long-range marksman, Powers has connected on 62 treys this season, just 10 short of the Brown record. He connected on a career high six three-point baskets against Maine earlier this season.

Powers had a big game in Brown's recent win over Penn in Philadelphia to give the Bears a season sweep of the Quakers, netting 22 points, dishing out five assists and making a career high six steals. He scored 22 points and grabbed a career high 12 rebounds in Brown's first meeting with Dartmouth, and scored 25 points in Brown's win over Stony Brook.
