Bowie State University’s Darrell Brooks was named the Central Interscholastic Athletic Association (CIAA) men’s basketball Coach of the Week on Jan. 17 after leading the Bulldogs to conference wins over Winston-Salem State University, Shaw University and St. Augustine’s College last week. This marked the third time this season Brooks has been named CIAA Coach of the Week.

The second-year head coach led BSU to an 86-76 win against WSSU on Jan. 10; an 85-74 victory over Shaw on Jan. 13 and a 67-54 win over St. Augustine’s on Jan. 15.
Bulldogs senior Eric Vann led the team in scoring in two of the three wins, including a career-high 26 points against Winston-Salem State. Junior Darren Clark also played well, scoring 51 total points during the three game-winning streak last week, while Byron Westmorland added his own impressive performance of a career-high 27 points scored against Shaw.

Bowie State is now No. 1 in the CIAA Northern Division with a 9-2 overall record, 4-0 in the CIAA. The Bulldogs will see more conference action over the weekend with a home matchup with Chowan University on Jan. 22
