Louison receives Association of Division III Independents men’s basketball Player of the Week award

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – St. Joseph's College (Brooklyn) senior forward David Louison (Brooklyn, N.Y.) has been awarded the Association of Division III Independents men's basketball Player of the Week. Led by Louison's 18 points and game-high 11 caroms, St. Joseph's erased a 13-point deficit to claim a 69-66 comeback victory over sister campus rivals St. Joseph's (Long Island) on Thursday in the Hill Center Grand Opening. The senior made history in the process, securing his 1,000th career rebound to become the first Bears player in history to join the 1,000-point, 1,000-rebound club. He added two assists, two steals and a game-high two blocks in another dynamic all-around effort. For the season, Louison has secured a double-double in nine out of ten games and is averaging 15.2 points per contest (fifth in the Association) and a Association-leading 12.4 boards, paving the way for St. Joseph's 7-3 start.
