North Texas's Roger Franklin has been selected as the StatSheet Sun Belt Player of the Week for the week ending January 21st. Shawn Long from Louisiana has won StatSheet's Sun Belt Freshman of the Week. Franklin had great stats in shooting (70%), rebounding (7.5 per game), and scoring (20.5 pts per game). The North Texas senior played well for the Mean Green in a victory versus Florida Atlantic and a loss to Florida International.

Franklin led the Mean Green in scoring and rebounding with 29 points and 8 rebounds in a 70-64 loss to Florida International. He followed that up with 12 points and 7 rebounds in a narrow 61-59 victory over Florida Atlantic.

This is the first time this season that Roger Franklin has been selected StatSheet Sun Belt Player of the Week. The runner-up this week is junior Brandon Harris from Western Kentucky. Honorable mention goes to Augustine Rubit, a junior from South Alabama. Greg Gantt, who finished fourth, was the highest ranking player from Florida Atlantic.

StatSheet Sun Belt Freshman of the Week: Louisiana's Shawn Long

Shawn Long averaged 36 minutes while starting both games for Louisiana. His averages in scoring (16.0 pts per game), rebounding (13.5 per game), and free throws (3.5 per game) were the best among all Sun Belt freshmen. In a 72-49 loss to Western Kentucky, Long chalked up 11 points and 14 rebounds. In an 82-60 loss to Middle Tennessee State, he led all scoring and rebounding, putting up 21 points and 13 rebounds.

Amazingly, Shawn Long has won the StatSheet Sun Belt Freshman of the Week 3 times. The runner-up is our own Stefan Moody. Raeford Worsham from Arkansas State takes honorable mention. Florida Atlantic has won the StatSheet Sun Belt Player of the Week award 3 times this season.
