POTSDAM, N.Y.-For the second week in a row, SUNY Potsdam sophomore men's basketball player Isaiah Brown (Westside Queens, N.Y./NIA Prep) has been named the SUNYAC PrestoSports Men's Basketball Athlete of the Week. Brown averaged 29.5 points in a pair of home conference wins last weekend. He shot 47-percent from the floor going 6-for-12 from 3-point range and added a 17-for-21 performance from the free throw line. Brown grabbed 22 rebounds in the two games. On Friday night against 11-3 Oswego State, the forward scored 24 points. The following afternoon against 10-5 SUNY Cortland he scored a career-high 35 points as the Bears completed the sweep to remain atop the SUNYAC standings with an 8-1 conference record. Brown added four assists, five steals and two blocked shots during the weekend. Since joining the team in January, Brown has scored 20 or more points in all seven games he has played. The red hot Bears (13-3, 8-1 SUNYAC) have won seven in a row. They hit the road for the College at Brockport and SUNY Geneseo this weekend. Potsdam tips off against the Golden Eagles at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and the Knights at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
