Basketball: Former Cajun in Nets Camp
Oct. 7, 2009

www.ragincajuns.com – Former University of Louisiana men’s basketball standout Brian Hamilton is currently participating in training camp with the NBA’s New Jersey Nets.

Hamilton, a two-time All-Sun Belt Conference selection while with the Ragin’ Cajuns, is in Nets camp for the second straight season.

He appeared in three minutes of the Nets’ preseason opener with the New York Knicks on Sunday, Oct 4, grabbing one rebound and one steal.

Hamilton appeared in four games for Pure Foods of the Philippine Basketball Association in 2008-09. He averaged 13.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 3.0 steals and 1.0 block in 34.8 minutes per game while shooting .541 (20-37) from the floor and .556 (15-27) from the free throw line.

Undrafted in the 2005 NBA Draft, Hamilton appeared in 10 games for the Pennsylvania Valley Dogs of the USBL, averaging 15.7 points while shooting .538 from the field in 2005-06. During the 2007-08 campaign with the Utah Flash of the D-League, he averaged 10.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists while starting 34 of 49 games.

Hamilton spent the 2003-04 and 2004-05 seasons with Louisiana – his junior and senior seasons – after transferring from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.

In each of his seasons with the Ragin’ Cajuns he led the team in rebounds, steals and blocked shots. He finished his Cajuns career with 133 steals, the 10th most in school history.

Brian Hamilton Named Sun Belt Player of the Week

Houston native averaged 17 points and 11 rebounds in
Louisiana-Lafayette’s home sweep of Western Kentucky and Middle
Tennessee

LAFAYETTE – He averaged a double-double for the week and led his team to
a pair of home victories that extended the squad’s winning streak to a
season-high six games. On Tuesday, Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns men’s
basketball forward Brian Hamilton was recognized for his efforts by
being named the Sun Belt Conference’s men’s basketball Player of the
Week.

Hamilton had an impressive week in lifting the Ragin’ Cajuns (11-7, 6-1
Sun Belt) into a tie for first in the Sun Belt West. The Houston, Texas
product averaged 17 points and 11 rebounds per game while shooting a
remarkable 71 percent from the field.

He had 18 points, nine rebounds, five blocked shots and five assists in
a win over Western Kentucky last Thursday. He followed with a
double-double against Middle Tennessee on Saturday (16 points, 13
rebounds) – his fifth double-double of the season.

He made the key play against MT – followed up a missed layup by Dwayne
Mitchell at 2:11 with a putback that extended the Cajuns lead to 46-42
and helped revive the Cajuns faithful for the home stretch.

Against WKU, Hamilton recorded his 1,000th career point in his four-year
collegiate career and had an impressive stretch in which he blocked
back-to-back WKU attempts on the same possession. He ended the game
against the Hilltoppers with a career-best five blocked shots.

The Houston native picks up the weekly honor for the first time this
season and second in his Ragin’ Cajuns career. Last season, Hamilton was
named player of the week on Feb. 2 after performances against Western
Kentucky and Middle Tennessee.

This week’s honor is the second of the season for head coach Robert
Lee’s program. Hamilton joins Tiras Wade as the Cajuns’ honorees during
the 2004-05 season – Wade was named Sun Belt POW on Dec. 21 after his
record-setting performance at N.C. State.
