February 5, 2007

Cal State Fullerton senior point guard Bobby Brown is one of 13 finalists for the Division I version of the Bob Cousy Award, presented to the nation's top point guard by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in conjunction with the Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc.

Brown leads the Big West Conference in assists at 5.4 per game and is the No. 2 scorer at 19.8 points per game. He also leads the conference in three-point field goals made and ranks No. 3 on the Big West career list in that department.

Brown is one of four finalists announced Feb. 1 from the West, joining UCLA’s Darren Collison, Arizona’s Mustafa Shakur and Nevada’s Ramon Sessions on the ballot.

Cousy, elected to the Naismith memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1971, was a six-time NBA Champion, 10-time All-NBA First Team, 13-time All-Star and was named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history. He was drafted by the Tri-Cities Blackhawks in 1950, then moved on to the Boston Celtics, where he played through the 1960s, retiring at the age of 35.

Nominees for the Bob Cousy Award were solicited through the College Sports Information Directors of America (COSIDA) and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). A committee comprised of CoSIDA members narrowed the field to 17 student athletes from all three divisions of men’s NCAA college basketball. The group of 17 will be reviewed and a winner chosen by a Blue Ribbon selection committee comprised of Hall of Famers, Cousy, college coaches, media members, and a vote representing the top vote getter in the on-line poll at
