ST. LOUIS – Endicott junior guard Keith Brown (Pelham, N.H.) has been named the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Division III Men's National Player of the Week. It was announced by the organization earlier today.
Today's announcement marks the second time in his career that Brown has won the award (11/21/17).
Last week (Nov. 12-18), Brown put up strong offensive numbers for Endicott in its 4-0 week, which included wins over No. 5 MIT and Babson.
Brown opened the week by dropping 49 points against Eastern Nazarene on Monday (Nov. 12). He made nine three-pointers in that game and shot 63.6 percent (14-for-22) from the field overall. He also picked up four rebounds in that contest.
Brown then followed that up with a 19-point, three-rebound game against the No. 5 Engineers. He also helped the Gulls capture the Babson Invitational last weekend, scoring 13 points against Suffolk before guiding his team to a come-from-behind win over the Beavers to claim the title. He scored 38 points against Babson, including 29 in the second half as the Gulls erased an 18-point deficit.
Overall in the four games played last week, Brown averaged 29.8 points per game and 2.3 rebounds per game. He shot 53.2-percent from the floor (41-for-77) and 61.1-percent from beyond the arc (22-for-36).
