Louisiana Ragin' Cajun guard Frank Bartley is off to a great start this basketball season. Today, he was honored for his recent play.

Bartley is the Sun Belt Conference player of the week.

In wins over James Madison and Texas Southern, Bartley averaged 23.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals.

The junior transfer from BYU has settled in nicely, taking on a scoring role, as well as a leadership role.

"He may not be a captain, but there's no question Frank is one of the leaders of this basketball team," said Louisiana head coach Bob Marlin.

Bartley and the Cajuns host Nicholls State this Thursday in the first game at Cajundome since its recent renovation.
