The two teams played for Georgia's AAAAA title last season, with Norcross coming away with the victory in thrilling fashion. Centennial was seeking revenge but was overmatched by Norcross.
Leading the way for Centennial was Brown, who tallied a game-high 25 points in the playoff loss.
"We played well, but not good enough," said Brown. "I was able to get some points, but we still didn't win. Their defense was a sagging man so we really couldn't run any of our plays. We just had to attack and run some one-on-one and that's what I did... I attacked. I think their rebounding hurt us, and we didn't play really good defense in the game."
Brown's focus will now shift to the AAU circuit, where he will be suiting up for two teams this summer.
"I'm going to be playing with World Wide [Renegades] again, and I'll be playing with Louis Williams Elite," said Brown. "It's going to come down to the tournaments... which team I'll play for every week."
According to Brown, he ended his junior season averaging 25 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists. The 6-foot-5 guard is rated the No. 4 shooting guard and the No. 17 overall player in the 2009 class by Scout.com.
On the recruiting front, a new school has intensified its efforts while three others continue to pursue Brown extremely hard.
"Memphis came up," said Brown. "They just started to get on me recently. Miami, they've been calling trying to get me to games and stuff... trying to get me to visit. NC State has been doing the same thing, they're on me real hard. Those two and Florida."
With his junior year complete, Brown is going to focus more on his recruitment. He hopes to have a decision before the start of his senior season or later this summer, and he will be visiting an ACC program this weekend with his mother.
"I'm going to NC State this Friday with my mom, and I think we're staying up there until Sunday," said Brown. "I'm going to go and watch their game against Duke, and I'm going to tour the campus. I just want to see what the campus is like... J.J. [Hickson] likes it there, and I'm thinking I might like it too if he does."
A couple of factors will play a pivotal role in Brown's final decision.
"I'm going to look for a place I'm comfortable," he said. "I want to get along with everybody at the school... the coaches and the players."
Brown maintains that he is wide open and doesn't have a leader. He spoke briefly about four schools that he is seriously considering at this time.
Memphis: "I like the way they get up and down the court. They let their players play. It's kind of like high school to me."
Miami: "They are about the same thing as Memphis."
Florida: "I just wouldn't mind playing for coach Donovan."
NC State: "I like how they play too, and I heard that John Wall is looking hard at them. It would be cool to be able to play with him. I don't know him like that, but I know he's real good."
