NBA projection: Brown was invited to the NBA’s Chicago combine, which is a good sign that he’s in the mix to be drafted, even though he hasn’t shown up in many mock drafts. He was chosen Horizon League defensive player of the year and also made the league’s all-defensive team, and he was a finalist for the Lefty Driesell national defensive player of the year award. Brown blocked 10 shots against Minnesota-Duluth en route to a triple-double (he also piled up 15 points and 10 rebounds).

 

2013-14 Season

Brown helped lead Green Bay to a 24-7 record, 14-2 in the Horizon League, and a trip to the NIT. He set a single-season school record for blocked shots (94) and also shot 42 percent from 3-point range.

 

Key statistics: 15.6 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.0 apg, 3.1 bpg, 2.1 tpg, 30.3 mpg, .476 FG, .420 3PT, .727 FT

 

Cool statistic: Brown tied the Horizon League record for career blocked shots (309).

What Insiders Say

Green Bay coach Brian Wardle

“Alec will be one of the most mature and experienced players at the combine, and I think that will serve him well as he goes through the experience. I’m confident he will do well at the combine and show off his hard work ethic and abilities that will be attractive to NBA teams. Off the court, the priority he has placed on finishing school strong and earning his diploma is an example of his maturity.”

 

What Outsiders Say

Belmont coach Rick Byrd

“Alec is probably the best 7-foot-plus shooter I’ve ever coached against. He’s a really tough match-up and a guy that alters shots on the defensive end.”
