Brown's Earl Hunt Named Ivy League's Player of the Week
Jan. 8, 2002
Brown University junior guard Earl Hunt (Rockville, MD), who scored over 30 points in back-to-back games against Army and Navy, was named the Ivy League's Player of the Week for the second time this season.
Hunt, the Ivy League's top scorer with 21.3 points per game, scored 33 points against Army. His 12 field goals against the Cadets were the most ever by a Brown player at the Pizzitola Sports Center. Penn's Matt Maloney (2/4/95) and Maine's Casey Arena (12/10/94) each connected on 13 field goals.
He then scored 26 of his game high 35 points in the second half to lead Brown to a win over Navy. He converted 9 of 11 shots from the field in the second half, and made 10 of 10 free throws for the game.
A first team All-Ivy selection last season, Hunt connected on 23 of 35 shots (.657) from the field for the week, and 14 of 16 free throws. A versatile player, Hunt also pulled down 10 rebounds, handed out eight assists, and made eight steals.
