INDIANAPOLIS – Oakland’s Isaiah Brock has been named both Horizon League Player and Freshman of the Week after leading the Golden Grizzlies to a pair of road wins with double-doubles in both games. The freshman from Baltimore shot nearly 79 percent from the floor and averaged 14 rebounds per game, including a Horizon League season-high 18 rebounds at Youngstown State, and grabbed a combined 12 offensive rebounds for the week. He also averaged 15 points and blocked five shots. Brock is the first player to be named both player and freshman of the week since the league began naming a weekly newcomer in the 2012-13 season.

Player of the Week | Isaiah Brock | Oakland | Freshman | F | Baltimore
Brock led the way for the Golden Grizzlies in two road wins over Youngstown State and Cleveland State. Brock was a dominant force on both ends of the floor, averaging 15.0 points, 14.0 rebounds, 3.0 blocks and 1.5 steals in the two games, while recording a team-best 79 percent from the floor.

In Oakland’s 90-76 win over Youngstown State, Brock tallied a career-high 16 points and 18 rebounds. His 18 rebounds is the third-most by a freshman in the NCAA this season, and a Horizon League high.

The Baltimore native went 6-of-7 from the floor and a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line. On Saturday against Cleveland State, Brock blocked a shot at the buzzer to preserve Oakland’s 53-51 win. He recorded his second-straight double-double finishing with 14 points and 10 rebounds, adding four blocks.

This is Brock’s first Horizon League Player of the Week honor and Oakland’s second consecutive (Jalen Hayes, Jan. 30).
