Basketball's Gary Gaskins BCC Student-Athlete of Week
January 22, 2013 - Men's basketball player Gary Gaskins is the Brevard Community College Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending Jan. 20.
Gaskins, a 6-foot, 10-inch sophomore center from Orlando, FL, had a stellar week as BCC rolled to two key Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference victories.
Gaskins scored eight points, pulled down seven offensive rebounds and 10 overall and blocked seven shots as BCC upset previously unbeaten Palm Beach State College 73-66. He scored 11 points, secured eight rebounds and blocked seven shots as BCC routed Miami Dade College 96-50.
"Gary has been outstanding for us, and is the anchor to our defense," BCC head coach Jeremy Shulman said. "He is very deserving of the Student-Athlete of the Week award, and I'm very proud of him for his daily improvement and hard work."
