Nov. 30, 2002

Senior defender Dustin Branan (Lakeville, MN), junior forward Adom Crew (Columbia, MD) and sophomore goalkeeper Chris Gomez (Bellflower, CA) were named to the 2002 NSCAA All-New England Third Team.

Branan was one of only three players to start in all of Brown's 17 games this season and one of five players to have played in every game. Branan, a dominant player in the air, totaled one goal and one assist for three points on the year. He closed out his career at Brown having played in 62 games, starting 58 of them with two goals and three assists for seven points. During his tenure, he helped lead the Bears to 21 shutouts and was a three-time All-Ivy Selection.

Crew had an excellent start to the season before an injury sidelined him for the remaining nine games. In eight games Crew totaled ten goals and two assists for 22 points. At the time of his injury he was ranked fourth in the nation in goals and was on a six-game scoring streak. Up until the week of Nov. 4, he was still the Ivy League leader in scoring, despite not having played in nearly a month. Crew finished the season tied for the lead in goals and second in scoring.

Gomez finished the season as the Ivy League leader in saves with 73 saves. In 1194:03 minutes of action, Gomez compiled a 1.21 goals against average and a .820 save percentage with a 5-5-3 record including three shutouts. He recorded a season-high ten saves in a 1-1 tie with Princeton on Oct. 18. Gomez posted five saves or more in nine games, earning 14 starts overall in the Bears 17 games.
