Andre Brown Named Conference USA Player of the Week



CHICAGO – DePaul's Andre Brown has been named the Conference USA Player of the Week it was announced by the league office today.

 

Brown averaged a double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds per game, while shooting .714 from the field to lead DePaul to a pair of home wins last week. On Feb. 3, his second game back after a nine-contest hiatus with a sore knee, Brown helped the Blue Demons to a 72-58 victory over Tulane with career-high tying 24 points, while grabbing 12 rebounds. This past Saturday, he posted his eighth double-double of the season with 14 points and 10 rebounds. The Chicago native is two points shy of 1,000 points in his DePaul career and he would become the just 10th player in school history to record 1,000 points and 700 rebounds. Brown currently has 758 career rebounds.

 

He becomes the fourth DePaul player under Dave Leitao (and the second this season) to earn the award. Brown joins Sam Hoskin, Joe Tulley and Drake Diener as Blue Demons who have earned the honor in the past two seasons. Diener earned the honor last month.

 

DePaul, which has won six of its last seven games, is 13-7 overall and 6-3 in Conference USA. The Blue Demons play at Saint Louis on Wednesday.
