KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island's Cyril Langevine has been named the Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, the league announced Monday. It is the second career conference honor for the senior.
Langevine had two monster performances last week, averaging a double-double of 13.0 points and 11.0 rebounds. He added 2.5 blocks, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal in two wins for the Rams, pushing their win streak to 10.
The East Orange, N.J. native scored his 1,000th career point and finished with 15 points, nine rebounds and four blocks in the Rams 73-67 victory over Massachusetts. He followed that with his sixth double-double of the year, getting 11 points, 13 rebounds and three assists in Rhody's capitalizing 82-51 win at George Washington.
For the week, Langevine was 9-for-11 from the floor (.818), missing just one field goal in each game. He also made his first career 3-pointer, which came on the first shot of the game at GW.
The Rams return to action tomorrow night at first-place Dayton. The game, which will air nationally on CBS Sports Network, is set for a 7:30 p.m. tipoff. A win against the Flyers - who are currently ranked No. 6 in this week's national poll - would move Rhody into a tie for the top spot in the Atlantic 10 standings.
