Albany, N.Y. - Gerardo Suero was named mid-major player of the week on nbadraft.net on Saturday, Jan. 7. Suero averaged 23.0 points in UAlbany's last two victories this past week. The junior guard is currently fourth in the nation in scoring with 22.1 points per game and has found the free throw line more than anyone else in the nation with 142 free-throw attempts.
Suero, the Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic native, has been one of the most consistent scorers on the Great Dane roster. In the past eight games, he has scored 20-plus points in which UAlbany is 6-2 overall. He has scored in double-digits in every game he has played in this year. Suero, a junior college transfer, has had no problem adjusting to the Division I level as he has been able to not only make it to the free-throw line more than anyone in the nation but has made the second-most free throws with 116.
Suero and the rest of the Great Danes look to win their fourth consecutive game on the road against Stony Brook on Sunday, Jan. 8 at Pritchard Gym at 2 pm.
