RICHMOND, Va. - College of Charleston graduate student Ryan Larson has been named the CAA Men’s Basketball Co-Player of the Week after earning MVP honors at the Shriners Children’s Charleston Classic.

The Cougars earned a thrilling 77-75 victory in the championship over defending ACC champion Virginia Tech on Sunday afternoon in TD Arena to close out a 3-0 weekend at the ESPN MTE.

The guard from Minnesota was in double figures in all three wins with 21 points in the victory over Davidson.
