Freshman guard came off the bench to scored 18 points while adding five assists and two steals in a 90-75 win over Cameron.

LSC South Men's

Brown led the Rams in scoring in both of ASU's contests last week as they remained tied for the top spot in the LSC South Division. The 5-10 senior poured in a career-high 35 points at West Texas A&M and followed that up with a 20-point performance at Eastern New Mexico. In the game at WT, Brown was 10-of-15 from the field, including 3-of-5 from three-point range, and 12-of-15 from the free-throw line. Against ENMU, he never made a two-point shot, going 5-of-17 from the field, connecting on 5-of-10 shots from three-point land and 5-of-5 attempts from the charity stripe. For the week, Brown averaged 27.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, four assists and shot 46.9 percent from the field, 53.3 percent from beyond the arc, and 85 percent from the free-throw line.
