Sept. 23, 2002

Junior forward Adom Crew was named the Ivy League and ECAC Player of the Week for the week of Sept. 23. Crew was named the MVP of the Yale Classic this weekend. The co-captain helped lead the Bears to the tournament title, scoring five of the Bears eight goals in two games for a total of ten points. Brown defeated Alabama 3-1 on Friday and Vanderbilt 5-1 on Sunday.

Crew scored all three goals in the teams win over Alabama A&M for the first hat trick of his collegiate career. The 2001 All-Ivy selection scored his first goal at 17:37 on a left-footed volley off his chest to put the Bears up 1-0. He picked up his second goal of the night three minutes into the second half. Giving the Bears a 3-0 lead, Crew blasted a shot over Bulldogs goalie Andrew Jjombwe's head in the 66th minutes of the game.

Crew scored two goals in Brown's win over Vanderbilt on Sunday, including the game-winner. He flipped the ball past Vanderbilt's goalie to give the Bears the lead in the opening minute of the second half. In the 60th minute of the game, freshman Ibrahim Diane served the ball to Crew on the far post for the Bears third goal of the day.

His five goals in just four games this season surpasses his entire 2001 output of three goals in 16 games. Crew was named to the adidas/Brown Classic's All-Tournament team last weekend as well. He currently leads Brown with five goals and 11 points.
