Brown named NCAC Player of the Week

Denison senior Kyle Brown received North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week recognition after helping the 14th-ranked Big Red to a pair of victories over St. Mary's and U.S. Merchant Marine.

The senior attackman logged a trio of goals in DU's 16-4 victory over St. Mary's, and followed that up with another hat trick in a 17-4 win over U.S. Merchant Marine.  In addition to his three tallies against the Mariners, Brown dished out three assists en route to his six-point performance.  Both his assist and point totals are career highs.  Brown has 10 goals and five assists in five games and co-leads the team in points with 15.  The Glenview, Ill. native has logged three goals in three of the last four games.

Denison (4-1) opens NCAC action on Saturday (March 26) when they host defending conference champion Wooster at Deeds Field-Piper Stadium.  Game time is slated for 1 p.m.  A live video feed of Saturday's NCAC lid-lifter will be provided by the Denison Sports Network.
