Vinales Named Player of the Week

Sophomore guard Kyle Vinales has been named the Northeast Conference Player of the Week, it was announced on Monday. 

Vinales posted three straight 20-plus point outings as the Blue Devils went 2-1 last week, improving to 2-2 on the season. Last year's NEC Rookie of the Year, he opened the week with a 24-point performance in a 64-61 setback at Saint Peter's.

Vinales then guided CCSU to its first win of the season, an 86-71 victory over Brown at home that saw him score 24 of his season-high 28 points in the second half. It marked his most productive game of the season as he also added four assists, two steals and shot 4-of-5 from beyond the arc.

The Detroit, MI native capped the three-game week with a game-high 23 points as CCSU posted a noteworthy 81-74 triumph at La Salle. Overall, he averaged 25 points while shooting 49.1% from the field and 44% from distance. Vinales currently leads the NEC with 23.3 ppg, and over the first 33 games of his young career has racked up 613 points and averaged 18.6 ppg.
