Brock and Bennett Named to Jesuit Basketball Spotlight Honor Roll

January 15, 2010

Two Loyola University New Orleans men’s basketball players were named to the Jesuit Basketball Spotlight Honor Roll.

Ryan Brock, a junior forward from New Orleans, was named to the Honor Roll for his performance on the court for the week of Jan. 3, while senior guard Sean Bennett was named to the Honor Roll for his performance on the court for the week of Dec. 21.

Brock scored a game-high 25 points in Loyola’s 85-72 victory over Talladega College on Dec. 30. He finished the night shooting 45.5 percent (10 of 22) from the field, with seven rebounds and three assists.

He is currently leading the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Conference in scoring, averaging 24.2 points per game in his second year with the Wolfpack.

Brock, a graduate of Brother Martin High School, was named Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week on Jan. 4. This is the third time this season that Brock has been named GCAC Player of the Week.

Bennett, who prepped at St. Paul's in Covington, La., scored 28 points and had a team-high four assists in the Wolfpack's last second loss to Delta State 80-78 on Dec. 19.

In the eight games that Bennett has appeared in this season, he has scored 20 or more points five times. He is currently averaging 20.75 points per game, which is ninth in the NAIA. He is sixth in the NAIA in three pointers made per game with 3.75.

The Jesuit Basketball Spotlight pilot project is a nationwide effort to identify basketball games between Jesuit schools during the upcoming 2009-10 season, and, through those games, bring greater positive awareness to Jesuit education and mission. This project was developed by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities 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 2009-10 year.
