College Hoops Illustrated is a national college basketball magazine that covers all levels of NCAA men's and women's basketball. The University Sports Publication, out of New York, has chosen GSW's Phillip Brown for their 2011-12 season preview issue. The image, Brown's thundering two-handed dunk versus Columbus State, was one of many iconic images from the Hurricanes' 2010-11 season.
Last month Brown was named to the PBC's Preseason All-Conference team, and he was named a Preseason All-American by several publications including The Sporting News.
Brown was the 2010-11 PBC Player of the year. He was also a 2010-11 First Team PBC All-Conference member. Brown ranked near the top of D-II in several categories, as well, including rebounds per game (fifth), field goal percentage (13th) and blocks (21st). The 6-foot-7 Jonesboro native recorded 14 double-doubles last season and scored in double-figures on 24 occasions. In addition, he pulled down double-figure rebounds 16 times.
