ANALYSIS: Brown is one of those players who make contributions that go unnoticed by fans, but are noticeable to his teammates. It would seem easy to get overshadowed on a Connecticut team with several first-round type talents. Brown's stats his senior season don't jump out at you even though they are solid -- 10.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, 40 percent from the floor and 87 percent from the free-throw line. However, he always seemed to be there on the floor producing, when some of the bigger names on the team were not. At the season-opening Maui Invitational last November, Brown averaged 15.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists. He also hit a jumper in the waning seconds against Gonzaga to win the tournament. Brown can be a streaky shooter, but in college he played an unselfish game, choosing to more often get his teammates involved. He is not an exceptional athlete but makes up for it by having a keen awareness of where to be on the floor in all situations. Brown does not possess great quickness or anything in his skill set that is exceptional besides his free-throw shooting and sometimes appearing offensive game. Brown is not afraid to take clutch shots and has international experience playing for Team Canada, where he played well offensively against professional players. He once scored 111 points in a high school game. Brown needs to work on his dribbling and continue to give the solid effort he is known for. He is projected as a second round pick, because at times in his career he was able to outshine his more talented teammates at Connecticut and appeared to be the glue of that team.
