During his four-year career as a Wasp, Kevin Brown rewrote virtually all of the college scoring records and most of the conference records. In his first season in 1984, he was the top freshman scorer among all small-college teams in the country. He was awarded the team’s Most Valuable Player recognition his freshmen and sophomore years. He was nationally ranked in one or more offensive categories in each of his four years at the college, and in 1985, his sophomore year, he was recognized with All-America honors. In 1986, he was named ODAC Player of the Year and received numerous All-Conference and All-Region honors during his career.

Brown set the record for career scoring, with 2,322 points to his credit. He also set records for highest career scoring average (23.2 points per game), career field goals (882), and most free throws in a single game (21). He set three other records, including most points in a season (703), highest season scoring average (28.1) and most field goals in a season (264). Brown continues to hold a national record for free throw shooting, having averaged 85.9% accuracy over his entire collegiate career. At the conclusion of his senior year, Brown’s jersey #24 was retired in honor of his many accomplishments as a Wasp.

After graduating in 1987, Brown was drafted to the Charleston (WV) Gunners to play professionally for the Continental Basketball Association. He was later recruited to play professionally with the Birmingham Bullets in England.

After returning to the United States, Brown began teaching and coaching at Gar-Field High School in Triangle, Virginia.
