Ragin’ Cajuns forward Jordan Brown earns third Sun Belt Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week honor
NEW ORLEANS – Louisiana’s Jordan Brown averaged 21.0 points per game and 13.5 rebounds per game in directing the Ragin’ Cajuns to a pair of key victories last week. For the third time this season, he is the Sun Belt Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week.
Brown led the Sun Belt in rebounding last week with 13.5 boards per game, adding 21.0 points per game. Brown shot 61 percent (17-of-28) from the field during the week. He led the Ragin’ Cajuns to wins against Texas State and Marshall. Those victories kept Louisiana in a tie atop the Sun Belt standings with a 10-2 league mark.
Brown opened the week with a 16-point, seven-rebound performance in an 82-63 win against Texas State which gave Louisiana a sweep of the regular-season series with the Bobcats for the first time since 2017-18.
Brown capped off the week by helping Louisiana extend its Sun Belt winning streak to 10 games. He scored 26 points and grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds in a 77-67 victory against Marshall. The 20-20 game was the first of Brown’s career and the sixth in Louisiana history.
