Here were the players of the week in Brooklyn’s college basketball scene. Performances from Jan. 27 through Feb. 2 count toward this list.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
David Louison, St. Joseph’s (18.5 PPG, 11 RPG, 2.25 APG, 1.5 SPG, 1.75 BPG in 4 games): Louison is probably the best player in the HVIAC and he continued his excellent play by leading the Bears to four wins last week. It was hard to pick his best game of the week, but it was likely a 27-point, 11-rebound performance against Medgar Evers. This is the second time that he has been named Player of the Week by the Brooklyn Eagle.
E.J. Reed, LIU Brooklyn (21 PPG, 6 RPG in 2 games): The Blackbirds dropped a pair last week, but Reed put forth a big effort in both games. In a game they lost by three points to Mount St. Mary’s, he had 24 points, eight rebounds, three steals and two blocks.
Cleandra Roberts, LIU Brooklyn (18.5 PPG, 9.5 RPG in 2 games): The Blackbirds lost two games, but Roberts did all she could with 23 points against St. Francis and then a double-double, 14 points and 13 rebounds, against Bryant.
Jalen Cannon, St. Francis (20 PPG, 8 RPG, 2 SPG in 2 games): Once again Jalen Cannon lands on the list. It must be nice for Glenn Braica to be able to count on 20 points and nearly 10 rebounds from the 6-10 Bully every night. It’s no wonder the Terriers look poised to make an NEC title run.
Megan Campbell, Brooklyn College (17.6 PPG, 11 RPG in 3 games): A nice three-game winning streak for the Bulldogs led by Campbell. Her biggest game was when she scored 15 points with 17 rebounds in a 10-point win over Mount St. Mary.
Brittany Jackson, ASA College (19.5 PPG, 7 RPG, 3 APG, 2 SPG in 2 games): Jackson had a couple of great games last week. She had 19 points with eight rebounds, three assists and three steals against Army and followed that up with 20 points, six boards and three assists against Monroe College.
