Senior point guard Tookie Brown was named Sun Belt Player of the Week for the second time this season after his performances in the Carolinas.

Brown had 17 points, six rebounds and four assists against Coastal Carolina and did even better Saturday against Appalachian State, scoring 28 points, coming down with eight rebounds and two steals.

The senior ranks sixth in the Sun Belt career scoring list and is ninth in scoring among Division 1 active players. Brown is also the only playing in conference history with more than 2,000 points and 500 assists.

Tied for third place in the conference, the Eagles control their own destiny to lock up a top-2 seed with all three remaining games at home. GS tips off against Arkansas-Little Rock Thursday at 7 p.m. in Hanner Fieldhouse.
