Best In The Nation: USF’s Brown Named Division II Free Throw Champion
Brown buried 76 of 79 attempts at the line for a 96.2% season free-throw percentage. His shooting clip was 2.4% better than runner-ups Jake Schalow of Bemidji State and MSU Moorhead’s Jordan Riewer, who tied for second at 93.8-percent.
The Clark native made 31 free throws in a row during a streak that lasted from December 6th to January 31st. His efforts paced the Cougars to a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference-best 76.6% team free throw shooting percentage, which also ranked 16th in the NCAA.
Brown finished his four-year USF career with 1,021 points to become the 30th member of the 1,000 Point Club. The three-year starter owns an 88.2% (186-for-21) career free throw percentage.
Best known for his adept touch at the line, Brown was nearly as lethal from beyond the arc. He went 193-for-462 (41.7 %) from three in his career to tie Ryan Coapstick for the most three pointers made in school history.
Both Brown and the USF Athletic Department will receive plaques from the NCAA recognizing his achievement.
A two-time NSIC All-Academic pick, Brown will graduate from USF this month with a degree in accounting and business administration.
