Providence, R.I. – Brown senior forward Steven Spieth was named the Ivy League Player of the Week for his three game performance in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament.

Against in-state rival No. 21 Rhode Island, Spieth scored 21 points, while pulling down five rebounds and handing out four assists as the Bears fell by seven. Spieth followed up that performance against Marist with another 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the field, while registering a team-high seven rebounds.

In the Bears’ final game against Albany, Spieth paced Brown with a game-high 25 points and seven rebounds, finishing 6-of-10 from the field and a perfect 10-of-10 from the free throw line.
