New Orleans, La.- Loyola University New Orleans men’s basketball player Ryan Brock was named to the Jesuit Basketball Spotlight Honor Roll for his performance on the hard wood last week.
Brock, a 6-3 forward who prepped at Brother Martin, keyed the Wolfpack offense through a 1-1 week by averaging 24.0 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. The New Orleans native shot 18-30 from the field and 12-17 from the foul line. Brock is currently fourth in the NAIA in scoring with an average of 22.1 points per game.
Loyola (12-11, 4-4 SSAC) is 1.5 games out of first place in the SSAC West with four conference games to play. The Wolfpack will be in action on Thursday against Belhaven University in Jackson with a 7:30 p.m. tip off. Loyola will also play Auburn-Montgomery on Saturday with tip off in The Den slated for 4 p.m.
The Jesuit Basketball Spotlight pilot project is a nationwide effort to bring greater positive awareness to Jesuit education and mission. This project was developed by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) in response to member institutions wanting to spread the word of Jesuit higher education through the more than 90 basketball games in which Jesuit institutions play each other (men and women) this year.
