Will anyone ever break the new record for the most points scored by a player in a game at LCU’s RIP Griffin Center?
LCU player Brennen Fowler broke the 17-year-old record on Dec. 29 by scoring 47 points against Randall University. The record was previously held by Chap Dusty Middleton, who scored 43 points on Feb. 1, 2001, against Oklahoma Baptist University.
Asked about how it felt to break the record. Brennen replied, “It was awesome! I had no idea what the record was. I saw that I had scored more points than whatever the record was and I didn’t know I was even close to it.”
“I was just trying to help us win the game,” he said. “I was given the game ball, but I just felt like it was just another game.”
Brennan says LCU men’s basketball coach Todd Duncan had made a huge impact on him.
“He is a great mentor and coach. He wants more than for us to win a game. He wants us to be successful in our lives,” Brennan said. “He has helped a lot of guys … [his]giving me the opportunity to play here at LCU was amazing … it’s crazy just how well he leads us every day.”
By the numbers, Brennen is having an incredible senior season, leading the team in points per game (29.9), three-point percentage (.400%), rebounds (298), and total points for the season (343).
Could Brennan be headed for a slot in the LCU Sports Hall of Fame?
“Honestly, brother, I’ve never thought about it,” he said. “Having the scoring record and the rebounding record is awesome, but the time that I’ve spent here is so much more than that! I’ve met some of my best friends. I’ve gotten to play a lot of basketball with them, and I’ve gotten to be a big brother to a lot of guys.”
For Brennan, it’s not about the records, but about the role he plays.
“Being in the LCU hall of fame would be incredible, but it’s definitely not something I go out and try to prove when I step on the court. I’m just trying to win ballgames and use the platform that I have to lead and guide others to the Lord. I have been so blessed by attending LCU — I just hope that I’ve been able to represent this university well over the past four years.”
