Record-Setting Performance Nets Cal State Fullerton's Brown Player of the Week Award
Cal State Fullerton senior Bobby Brown (Los Angeles, CA/Westchester HS) turned in one of the great single-game performances in Big West history on Saturday night against Bethune-Cookman, scoring a career-high 47 points in a 94-65 Titan rout. The record-setting display earned Brown his sixth career Men's Basketball Player of the Week honor.
A 6-2 point guard, Brown opened the game by scoring 17 of the team's first 19 points. He never stopped rolling from there, as his 47 points was the second-highest scoring total in league history. It trailed only the 53 points that Cal State Los Angeles star Raymond Lewis scored on Feb. 23, 1973 versus Long Beach State.
Brown tied another Big West record for most three-pointers made in a game with 11. He knocked down 11 of 13 from distance to equal the record first set by UC Irvine's Chris Brown in 1994 against New Mexico State. Brown became the 31st player in NCAA Division I history to make 11 threes in a game.
For the game, Brown made an incredible 17 of 20 (85.0%) shots overall while recording two assists, one block and three steals.
