Thomas Bruce has been named the America East Player of the Week.  Bruce, the Binghamton Bearcats standout center, has gotten off to a great start.  In a pair of BU wins over the past week Bruce averaged 20 points and 11 rebounds.  To go along with those figures he made 14 of 19 shots from the field for a blistering 74 percent clip.  After struggling at the free throw line earlier in the season he went 12-13 at the line over the last two games.
