WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- The Red River Athletic Conference announced that Dominique Rambo, the junior guard for Southwestern Assemblies of God University, is the Player of the Week.
He is sharing the honor with Travis Lampley, a senior guard from Houston’s University of St. Thomas.

The P.O.W. honor covers games between January 28 and February 3.
