BOSTON - For the week of competition ending on January 7, 2018, junior Geoffrey Gray (Newton, Mass.) was named NEWMAC Defensive Player of the Week. This is the second NEWMAC accolade for Gray this season as he earned Offensive Player of the Week back on November 20, 2017.
Gray proved to be a vital asset on the hardwood for Emerson as the junior helped the Lions to a 2-0 record to start off its NEWMAC slate in wins over Coast Guard and Clark. Over his last two contests, the junior guard averaged 20 points, 13.5 rebounds, and six assists. In Emerson's win over Coast Guard, Gray notched a double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds. Gray wrapped the week with his second double-double effort against Clark and put up a stat line of 19 points, 14 rebounds, nine assists, and one steal.
