Coach Bender on Brown
"We should have made the commitment earlier that he was the backup point guard last year. The amount of time that Bryan spent at point guard last year gave him an idea of what it was like and he responded very well. He needs to establish himself again with that point guard mentality from day one become the leader in that position. He did a very good job with it. He really addressed his conditioning and his body has completely changed with what he did during the off-season."
