LEXINGTON, Va. - Basketball's Stan Okoye has been named the VMI Athlete of the Week, for the time period ending Feb. 5.

Okoye keyed perhaps the best VMI comeback in recent years, an eight-point rally in the final 1:11 to beat Radford on Jan. 30 at the Dedmon Center. The senior and three-time Big South Player of the Week scored VMI's final 16 points, including 13 in those last 71 seconds, and capped his sensational closing with the game-winning basket with 3.4 seconds remaining.

VMI basketball is back in action Wednesday night, facing Longwood in Farmville, Va. at 7 p.m.
