Providence, RI - Brown University senior guard Jason Forte (Rockville, Maryland) was named the Ivy League Player of the Week and freshman guard Mark McAndrew (Barrington, Rhode Island) was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week for their play in leading Brown to wins over Wagner and Binghamton last week.

Against Wagner, Forte connected on 6 treys (6 of 10), the fifth most in Brown basketball history, in helping Brown to its first win of the season.

With the 22 points vs. Binghamton, the Brown co-captain moved past Chuck Savage (1,190 points from 1988-92) into 11th place on Brown's all-time scoring with 1,193 career points.
