Strengths: Quick, crafty finisher/scorer and ball-handler. Smooth crossover dribble that gets him past his defenders. Is able to create scoring opportunities for himself with an array of moves in one-on-one situations. Displays a balanced shooting stroke coupled with a fluid/quick release and high-arc. Can hit open or contested jumpers. Good catch-and-shooter from long distance. Isn't afraid to look for his shot. Frees himself up for scoring opportunities on the perimeter by staying in motion and moving without the ball. Has a nice stop-and-pop jumper around the free throw line. Athletic guard with nice size and length. Decent finisher in transition. Good, active defender who stays in front of his man. Moves his feet and hips well when defending on the perimeter, and can get his hands into the passing lanes. Pressures ball-handlers and keeps his hands up. Like to defend his man the length of the court. Aggressive on both ends. Can take and make big shots. Shoot-first player but can also make plays for teammates off the dribble at times.
Weaknesses: Need to see more of him driving and finishing with his left hand. Sometimes tries to do more than he should on the offensive end, leading to some questionable shot selections. He's a streaky shooter from the outside and will need to work on maintaining to consistency. Getting stronger, especially in the upper body, will help him defend bigger guards when they penetrate. Has shown flashes of his play-making ability for others, but still needs work in this area when it comes to looking for his teammates more often. Good shooter off the dribble, but not as efficient compared to when he's catching and shooting.
Overall: The senior shooting guard can score in a lot of ways. At his best, he's spotting up on the perimeter and knocking down 3-pointers from all around the arc. His jump shot opens up the rest of his game, enabling him to use his ball-handling skills to beat his defender and score easy layups. He also can hit the mid-range jumper. Defensively, he stays focused and doesn't allow anything to come easy for his man. Brown would be a welcomed addition to any Division III school, but could also catch the attention of Division II schools if he shows improvements to his game.
