Biography: As a senior at Providence, Brooks scored almost twice as many points as he did the previous season and that breakout campaign could lead to the shooting guard hearing his name called in this year's draft. The Stone Mountain, Ga., native averaged 14.2 points as a junior with the Friars but finished as the nation's second-leading scorer in 2010-11 with 24.6 per game. His 788 points this season were the third-most in school history and he scored a Big East-record 52 of those in a 94-93 win over then-No. 9 Notre Dame on Feb. 23. Brooks set another conference mark in that game by making 20 field goals - on 28 attempts - and his 26.0-point average in Big East play was the fifth-highest in league history. For his efforts, he became the 10th player in Providence history to earn first team All-Big East honors and was a third team All-American. Brooks was also the only player in Division I to average at least 24.0 points and 7.0 rebounds, and one NBA team may see something in his emergence and take a chance in the second round.
