WASHINGTON D.C. – Loyola University’s Jasmine Brewer was named Jesuit Women’s Basketball Co-Player of the Week for the week of Jan. 20- Feb. 5, the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities announced Wednesday. This is Brewer’s second honor this week, and is the first time she has been named Jesuit Women’s Basketball Player of the Week.
The 5-9 forward from Houston, Texas had one of her best weeks in her collegiate basketball career scoring double-digits in both games played. Brewer averaged 21.5 points and shot 59.3 percent from the floor last week. She also racked up 10 rebounds and five steals.
In Thursday’s 82-57 win against Mobile, the sophomore sensation scored a season and game-high 26 points off of a 60.0 (9-for-15) field goal percentage. Brewer also converted on 100.0 of her attempts from the free throw line (8-of-8) while contributing six rebounds, three steals and three assists against the Lady Rams.
In addition to her remarkable play in the previous week, Brewer also ranks nationally in the NAIA in four categories: 3rd in field goal percentage (57.7), 23rd in points per game (16.3), 30th in offensive rebounds per game (3.5), and 34th in total scoring (343). Her 57.7 field goal percentage is also first in the SSAC.
Loyola will be back in action on Saturday when it hosts conference rival Faulkner. Tipoff is slated for 2 p.m. CT in The DEN.
