OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – St. Joseph's College (Brooklyn) junior forward David Louison (Brooklyn, N.Y.) has been named the Association of Division III Independents men's basketball Player of the Week.

The junior poured in 30 points, one shy of a career high, to help lead the Bears to their first win over the Bulldogs since 2006. The forward matched his season-high in points and coupled it with 10 caroms for his seventh double-double of the season. Louison went an impressive 12-of-16 (75 percent) from the field and made 6-of-9 (66.7 percent) from the charity stripe, on his way to reaching the career milestone in only 71 games. The three-time Player of the Week ups his scoring average to a career-high 17.5 points per game and is shooting a career-best 49.8 percent from the field.
