Davidson's De'Mon Brooks named SoCon Player of the Year

Davidson senior forward De’Mon Brooks is the SoCon men’s basketball player of the year for the second time in his career.

Brooks leads Davidson with 18.4 points per game and seven rebounds per game. He won the award in 2012 and he becomes in the first player in the history of the award to win it multiple times without winning it in consecutive seasons.

Brooks is third in the conference in scoring and sixth in rebounding. Davidson (19-11) went 15-1 in conference play and earned the No. 1 seed in this week’s conference tournament.

This is the third consecutive year a Davidson player has won the award. Forward Jake Cohen won it last season.
