Brown's AAU Coach Supports MD Decision.

2013 Terps commit Alexis Brown's AAU Coach Antonio Davis supports her college choice.

Alexis Brown’s AAU coach, former NBA player Antonio Davis, is confident in her decision to play basketball at Maryland.

Acknowledging Brown’s admiration for former Maryland point guard Kristi Toliver, Davis says that he can envision Brown being a similar type of player. “[Brown] can be a source of strength and step up and lead a team,” says Davis. “She’s been around basketball so much, so she really understands how to make sure the team is doing the right things in order to win.” Also like Toliver, Davis says that Brown can shoot the ball well and is a fierce competitor.

Davis says that if Brown faces any challenges, it’s that she cares too much. “She’s kind of a perfectionist,” said Davis, “she’s really hard on herself.” However, Davis believes that, perhaps channeling Toliver, Brown will be able to “be that mentally tough kid” because she will know that “everyone will be looking to [her] for leadership.”
