Congrats to former Pasadena High School point guard Darius Brown II for surpassing the 1,000-point club during his collegiate career.
DBII, a 2018 PHS grad, teamed up with Bryce Hamilton and their boys, in leading the Bulldogs to back-to-back CIF-SS title-game appearances in 2016-17 and 2017-18.
Brown went on to play three years plus a medical redshirt at Cal State Northridge, and he’s now in year one of two at Montana State University.
DBII reached the milestone in Saturday’s 69-54 victory over Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.
Brown had a team-best 22 points and four assists, and the Bobcats are now 10-7.
At MSU, Brown averages 25 minutes per game, nine points, five rebounds and has a team-best 78 assists.
His collegiate stats read like this: In 112 games, DBII had 108 starts, including more than 1,000 points, 500 assists, 150 steals, 400 rebounds and north of 30 minutes per game.
DBII’s middle brother, Davian Brown, is leading the Lewis-Clark State College offense and is closing in on the 1,000-point club himself.
Davian Brown played one year at The Master’s College.
And he’s really come into his own in Lewiston, Idaho.
Davian is the Warriors team leader in points (225), points per-game (16), field goals made (75), 3-pointers (36), 3-point percentage (.424), minutes per-game (30), and free-throws made (39).
The third of three Brown boys, Drew Brown, is currently a student at Pasadena City College.
Drew isn’t playing basketball, but he’s considering transferring to Arizona State or San Diego State.
And Drew is considering giving hoops one last shot.
He’s also very popular with the ladies.
The Brown boys have turned out so well, and their parents, Leah and Darius Brown Senior deserve so much credit for the way in which DBII, Davian and Drew carry themselves and represent their family.
