Mobile native and New Orleans Pelicans forward DeMarcus Cousins has been named the United States Sports Academy's male athlete of the month.

Cousins became the first player since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1972 to record a 40-20-10 triple-double in an NBA game after collecting 44 points, 24 rebounds, 10 assists, four steals and one block in a 132-128 win for the Pelicans against the Chicago Bulls on last month.

Cousins was not the only one to receive the accolade. Grambling State University guard Shakyla Hill also was honored for the month of January.
