Louisiana’s Jordan Brown Earns Spot on Prestigious Oscar Robertson Watch List
Louisiana Ragin' Cajun basketball won their 5th consecutive game last night, defeating Arkansas State by the score of 80-71.
At 15-4 overall, and 5-2 in conference play, the Cajuns currently sit in a 4-way tie for 1st place in the Sun Belt.
Louisiana big man Jordan Brown was dominant, putting up 31 points, 13 rebounds, 3 steals, 3 blocks, and an assist.
Simply put, the Red Wolves had no answer for him. For that matter, most opponents this season haven't either.
Prior to yesterday's game, Brown was named to the prestigious Oscar Robertson Trophy Midseason Watch List.
He's 1 of only 50 players to earn a spot on the list.
Although all Division I players remain eligible for the 2022-23 Oscar Robertson Trophy, the watch list spotlights players who are excelling on the hardwood and standing out with their dominant play.
The award is voted on by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association and awarded at the end of the season to the best player in college hoops.
In 19 games this season, Brown is averaging 19.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per contest.
