In a remarkable show of skill and dedication, Southern University’s junior guard, Tai’Reon Joseph, has been honored as the HBCU National Player of the Week by the popular radio program ‘From the Press Box to Press Row’. This recognition is a testament to Joseph’s outstanding performances in Southern’s recent triumphs over Prairie View and Florida A&M.

Impressive Performances

Throughout these matches, Joseph averaged an impressive 27.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and showcased a 49% shooting rate from the field. In an exhilarating game against Florida A&M, Joseph displayed his scoring ability by scoring a season-high 33 points, which included eight 3-pointers. This accomplishment marks the most by a Southern player since Richard Lee in 2018 and the highest scoring game in a SWAC match since Derick Beltran’s performance in 2013.

An Essential Player for Southern

Joseph’s scoring prowess has been vital to Southern’s position as the team with the best record in the SWAC and their undefeated streak in conference play. His exceptional average of 20.1 points per game leads the SWAC and ranks him 22nd in Division I scoring.

Prior to joining Southern, Joseph excelled as a scorer in junior college at East Central (Mississippi) Community College. His scoring ability, honed during his time in junior college, has clearly translated well into his play at Southern University.

What Lies Ahead for Southern?

Currently boasting a 9-7 overall record and a perfect 3-0 in the conference, Southern is preparing to face Behune-Cookman in their upcoming game. With Tai’Reon Joseph as their key player, Southern University’s future games promise to be as thrilling as their recent victories.
