Junior Will Thomas’ 25- point, 10-rebound, five-assist performance in Mason’s season-opening win over Cleveland State University earned the Patriot basketball tri-captain the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Player of the Week award for the first time in his career.

After being named to the CAA All-Rookie team two years ago and the CAA All-Defensive Team last year, Thomas was selected preseason first team All-CAA this season. He showed why last weekend, shooting 10 of 13 from the field and 5 of 7 from the free throw line while pacing Mason in the three major statistical categories.

Thomas had just three double-doubles in the 2005-06 regular season but he had no trouble getting to the basket or grabbing boards against the Vikings on Saturday. Thomas finished with nearly a third of Mason’s points, rebounds and assists.
