Cecil Brown was named the Macy's/ucsbgauchos.com Student-Athlete of the Week Monday after guiding the Gauchos to two conference road victories this past weekend. The senior guard netted 14 points in UCSB's win over Big West leader UC Irvine on Thursday and 23 against Long Beach State at the Pyramid on Saturday. It was Brown's clutch free throw shooting down the stretch that enabled the Gauchos to maintain their lead over the 49ers.
Brown was also named the Big West Player of the Week Monday for his efforts over the weekend. Brown and the Gauchos return to action this Wednesday when they play host to central coast rival Cal Poly at 7:00 at the Thunderdome.
