NEW ORLEANS – Jordan Brown of Louisiana averaged 21.0 points per game and 13.5 rebounds per game as he led the Ragin’ Cajuns to two key wins last week. He is the Sun Belt Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for the third time this season.
Brown led the Sun Belt in rebounding last week with 13.5 boards per game and added 21.0 points per game. Brown shot 61 percent (17 of 28) from the field during the week. He led the Ragin’ Cajuns to victories over Texas State and Marshall. Those victories kept Louisiana atop the Sun Belt standings by a 10-2 league mark.
Brown opened the week with a 16-point performance and seven rebounds in an 82-63 win over Texas State that gave Louisiana a regular-season series win with the Bobcats for the first time since 2017-18.
