NYC Big Man Working Hard On Individual Game

Reporter Mike Sullivan updates a player profile on Christ The King big man Roland Brown, who recently competed in the Super Hoop Jamfest held at Holy Cross High School ...


HEIGHT: 6-foot-8

WEIGHT: 245 Pounds

HIGH SCHOOL: Christ The King High School in Middle Village, New York

POSITIONS: Center/Power Forward

CLASS: 2010, Currently A Rising Senior

COLLEGE INTERESTS: Fordham, St. John's, Seton Hall, Monmouth, St. Francis, Hofstra, George Mason, St. Peter's, Winthrop, Rutgers, Stony Brook


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.

*UPDATE: Roland has another year at Christ The King to improve his individual game. We watched him play at the Super Hoop Jamfest held at Holy Cross High School in Flushing, New York earlier this week.

What we saw was a player with nice size who must make improvements in the area of consistency, being involved on each possession.

He contributed six points in about 20 minutes of playing time. He'll be tested again in the July evaluation period as well as at IS8 in the Fall. Christ The King always plays a tough schedule so the subject of competition isn't an issue here.

What we're looking for is a player who competes on every possession and tries to make himself available to the ball in the low post more.
