Rock’s Maron Brown earns All-America honor
BEAVERTON, Ore. – Maron Brown, Slippery Rock University senior forward from Salisbury, Md., added another award to his collection this week when the Division II Bulletin named him as an honorable mention All-America performer.
The honor comes on the heels of Brown earning second-team All-Atlantic Region honors from the National Association of Basketball Coaches and Daktronics and being named for the second consecutive season as a first-team All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference-Western Division performer.
Brown was the leading scorer (17.7 points per game) and rebounder (10.2 per game) on a Rock team that claimed PSAC runner-up honors for the first time since 2000 and earned a berth in the NCAA Division II playoffs for the first time since 1991. Kevin Reynolds is the team’s coach.
Brown ranked second in the PSAC in rebounding and fifth in scoring and was the No. 10 D-II rebounder in the nation. He finished his three-year Rock career with 1.312 points and 862 rebounds. Those marks rank seventh and third, respectively, on SRU's all-time lists.
He recorded a school-record 19 "double-doubles" last winter and was the only player in the 16-team PSAC to average more than 15 points and 10 rebounds per game. He scored 13 or more points in 25 games this season and topped the 20-point mark 11 times. He also recorded two games with more than 30 points, including a 32-point, 11-rebound effort against Cheyney in the PSAC semifinals.
Brown led all players in scoring at the PSAC Final Four this year, totaling 57 points and shooting 69.2 percent from the field in two games.
