PREVIOUS EVALUATION OF ROLAND BROWN'S GAME:

STRENGTHS: Brown has shown over the past few months the ability to overwhelm smaller and thinner defenders around the basket. He is improving and getting more confident as he competes in each game.

We've watched Christ The King compete a couple of times so far this season. And Roland Brown has been pinned to the bench in street clothes. There's a question of when he might be eligible to play. He needs to get himself settled in the academic department before he can help the Royals win some basketball games. We're hoping to see the big man able to play in the next few weeks. We'll keep you posted.
