What can Brown do for you?

Last season one of the problems for Georgia's basketball team was that they were not physical. Enter Takais Brown. He is very physical. After being suspended for the first 2 games, the juco transfer has dominated. In his first 5 games, he is averaging 16.6 points per game and 5.0 rebounds per game. On Tuesday he got 21 points and 5 rebounds vs Gardner-Webb and after the game I talked to him.

Dave McMahon -- Why Georgia?

Takais Brown -- I was raw after high school and Georgia was one of the first schools that noticed me. A few others noticed me after awhile. I really liked Coach Herrmann. I talked to him a lot.

DM -- What was the biggest crowd you have played in front of?

TB -- A few thousand.

DM -- How excited are you that the team is about to play some big games against some big schools?

TB -- Very excited. The last game against Wake Forest was a totally new experience. I am very excited of the games coming up.

DM -- Which player in the SEC are you excited about playing against?

TB -- Noah, Joakim Noah. He is the the big man in the SEC right now.

DM -- What do you still need to work on?

TB -- I can be lazy sometimes. I also get winded. I need to do better in that.

DM -- You had a 3-pt basket against Wake Forest, will we be seeing any more 3's?

TB -- It's possible. If I am open I will take it. I am not going to start jacking threes.

DM -- How old were you when you first could dunk a basketball?

TB -- In the summer between the 9th and 10th grade.

DM -- Play any other sports growing up?

TB -- I played some football when I was younger, but I got a growth spurt. I was a tall, skinny kid and they stuck me on the line. I didn't like it that much so I started playing in more AAU leagues.

DM -- Living in Flint, Michigan you probably saw a lot of good basketball games growing up... who do you remember watching?

TB -- Couple players. Kevin Torbert who played at Michigan State. Desmond Farmer from Southern Cal. Anthony Roberson and a few others. Those games were always sold out.

DM -- Thank you for your time and answers.
