Georgia Southern basketball player Tookie Brown has been named to the Lou Henson Award watchlist for the second consecutive year.

The Lou Henson Award is given out every year to the nation’s top mid-major Division I player.

This season, Brown is averaging 18.2 points, 4.8 assists and four rebounds a game. He is also ranked seventh nationally in Division I scoring and is the 16th ranked player on the Sun Belt’s career scoring list.

Brown is also 62 points away from becoming the all-time leading scorer in GS’ Division I era.

Along with Brown, three other athletes from the Sun Belt have been named to the watchlist.

The list includes:

  • Jakeenan Gant, from Louisiana
  • D’Marcus Simonds, from Georgia State
  • Jordan Varnado, from Troy

The award will be presented at the College Insider Awards during the men’s Division I National Championship in Minneapolis.
