Briona Brown named A-Sun Newcomer of the Week
Two standout performances helped JU women’s freshman Briona Brown earn A-Sun Newcomer of the Week honors Tuesday afternoon by the league office.

The Haines City, Fla., native posted a 16.5 scoring average, 7.5 rebounding average, four steals and three assists to help the Dolphins to wins over Vermont and Jacksonville State.

“Briona is very deserving of this award,” JU head coach Jill Dunn said. “She had two very good games for us this past week which resulted in two big wins for our team.”

Against Vermont, she led the Dolphins with 24 points, six boards and three assists in the 78-67 victory at Swisher Gym Nov. 21. She posted nine points and a team-best nine rebounds in the win against the Gamecocks on Nov. 25. Brown hit 5 of 6 free throws to help secure the Jacksonville State win down the stretch.

The Dolphins return to action tomorrow against South Carolina State in Orangeburg, S.C., at 5:30 p.m.
