DENVER – Seattle U sophomore guard Terrell Brown has been named Western Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the week of March 4-10. This is his second WAC Player of the Week honor of the season and of his career.
The Seattle native averaged 16.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists as the Redhawks closed out the regular season with a pair of overtime wins. On Thursday, Brown tallied his sixth double-double of the season, finishing with 11 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and a block in a 63-57 overtime victory against CSU Bakersfield. Brown was key down the stretch, sinking two free throws with four seconds remaining in regulation, then hauling down four defensive boards in the extra frame to secure the win. On Saturday against Grand Canyon, Brown had just two points in the first 30 minutes of play, but went on to score 19 of the Redhawks' final 35 points, including 14 during a 16-8 Redhawk run. He finished with a team-high 21 points to go along with four rebounds and four assists.
