The Commodores announced Tuesday that the 6-foot-8 Brown would return for the 2020-21 season. Coach Jerry Stackhouse said they are excited that Brown was granted another year of eligibility and thanked the support staff for helping make his case.
Brown averaged 9.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks before hurting his knee in a Dec. 14 game against Liberty.
Having Brown back is expected to be a big boost after the Commodores went 11-21 in Stackhouse's debut season. Sophomore forward Aaron Nesmith has declared for the NBA draft and is a projected first-round pick and junior guard Saben Lee is testing his NBA draft stock.
