Monday, February 04, 2013 10:00 pm
Frank Gaines was at his best offensively last week and the Summit League took notice.The IPFW senior forward was named as the Summit League Co-Player of the Week on Monday.

The 6-foot-4 forward scored a career-high-tying 32 points in the Mastodon's loss to Omaha and earned his second career Player of the Week honor.

Gaines also pulled down a season-high nine rebounds, making 11-of-19 shots from the field, and 10-of-12 from the charity stripe. His 11 field goals made are a new career-best, as the senior climbed into 25th in Summit League history in points, and 10th in free throws made.

For the season, Gaines averages 19 points per game, including a pair of 32-point games, and nine total games over 20 points.

He has hit at least 10 free throws in a game five times this season, and is 142-of-186 on free throws for the year. He also averages 4.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 1.6 steals per game on the year.

Gaines shares the honor with Oakland's Drew Valentine who scored 14 points and pulled down 16 rebounds, also against Omaha.

The Mastodons will host South Dakota State Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Coliseum.
