Brown hitting his stride

Posted December 17, 2012

— Lorenzo Brown may be coming off his best game yet this season, his 7-of-8 shooting performance against Norfolk State is a far cry from his 37-percent shooting in the Pack’s first eight games.

"I don't want point guards that can't score at all, that doesn't help your team. He's got to be able to distribute the ball, run your offense and score on top of that," Gottfried said.

By his own admission, Brown might have been trying to do too much in the early part of the season but now the Wooden Award top-50 player is defining his role as the Wolfpack playmaker.

"I think I'm getting back into the point guard mode a little bit now, I was trying to be both but now I realize I need to be more of a pure point guard," said Brown.

"We're one of the best team's in the country with him playing like that and if he's not playing like that because we have so many weapons on the team," said freshman Rodney Purvis.

"I just try to stay focused and get everybody involved as much as possible," said Brown. "I mean that's my job on this team is to get everyone involved and make the right plays."

"I thought early in the year he tried to do too much at times, he was driving and really ended up with some tough shots. I think he's really running our team better lately," said Gottfried.

So much is expected from Lorenzo Brown’s junior season and he may be finding his groove, just in time for the Holidays.

    Brown is a very good PG, and he's a big reason State is winning games and should have a good season.
