CORPUS CHRISTI – Rashawn Thomas has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Thomas receives the award after helping the team to victories in the Islanders' first two Southland Conference games.
Freshman Thomas had a monster week in the Islanders' road wins. Thomas had 18 points, eight boards and four blocks in the Islanders' win over Central Arkansas, then followed it up with his second career double-double, netting 15 and 12 in an upset of Oral Roberts.
It marked A&M-Corpus Christi's first road weekend sweep since the opening weekend of the 2009-10 season.
The men's basketball team will return home this week for a pair of games. The Islanders take on Northwestern State at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, and follow on Sunday with a matchup against Stephen F. Austin Saturday with tip set for 6:30 p.m.
