Westwood, Mass. (November 20) -- MIT men's basketball junior guard Bradley Jomard (Paris, France) has been honored as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in a pair of home wins for the Engineers. This is the second time that Jomard has earned Defensive Player of the Week honors in his career.
In a 2-0 week for the Engineers, Jomard averaged six steals and two blocks per game as MIT allowed just 51 points per game while improving to 2-0. He also averaged 17 points on 66.7 percent shooting from the field while adding five rebounds and six assists per contest. Jomard posted eight assists and five defensive rebounds in the season-opening win over Bridgewater State, followed by four assists, four steals and five rebounds in the victory over Eastern Nazarene.
Jomard and the Engineers are back in action on Tuesday night as MIT travels to nearby No. 6 ranked Tufts University for a 7 p.m. non-conference start.
