Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun Basketball won its 5th straight game last night, beating Arkansas State 80-71.
At 15-4 overall and 5-2 in conference play, the Cajuns are currently sitting in a 4-way tie for 1st place in the Sun Belt.
Louisiana big man Jordan Brown dominated with 31 points, 13 rebounds, 3 steals, 3 blocks and an assist.
Put simply, the Red Wolves had no answer for him. By the way, most opponents this season don’t have that either.
Ahead of yesterday’s game, Brown was included in the prestigious Oscar Robertson Trophy Midseason Watch List.
He is one of only 50 players who have earned a spot on the list.
Although all Division I players remain eligible for the 2022-23 Oscar Robertson Trophy, the watchlist focuses on players who excel on the hardwood and excel in their dominant play.
The award is chosen by the US Basketball Writers Association and is presented to the top player in college basketball at the end of the season.
In 19 games this season, Brown is averaging 19.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per contest.
