Brandi Brown Named AP All-American
Youngstown State senior women's basketball player Brandi Brown has been named Honorable Mention All-America by the Associated Press, the organization announced on Tuesday.

Brown is the first YSU women's basketball player to appear on the AP All-America team. The Pomona, Calif., native was named the Horizon League Player of the Year and Academic All-American earlier this season.

Brown averaged 20.1 points and 11.1 rebounds while posting 23 double-doubles this past season, her final in a Penguins uniform. She is one of only two players in the country who ranked in the top 20 in scoring and rebounding, and she ranks fifth nationally in double-doubles. Brown finished her Youngstown State career with 2,079 points and a school-record 1,239 rebounds.

Brown was a consistent star throughout her senior season, but she gained national attention for her performance down the stretch. As YSU's only post for the final three weeks of the regular season, Brown averaged 28.2 points in a six-game span. She was named the espnW National Player of the Week on March 4 after averaging 40.5 points and 17 rebounds the previous week, and she had a rare 40-20 game with 42 points and 21 rebounds against Wright State on March 2.

Brown was the only Horizon League player and one of only two players in Ohio to earn All-America honors by the Associated Press.
