After seeing limited time as a sophomore, Brown started every game over his final two years in a UTA uniform.

Five years after his final game in a Mavericks uniform, Brown still ranks eighth on UTA's all-time steals list and ninth on the school's all-time assists chart. He also excelled academically, earning recognition as a member of the SLC's All-Academic team in 1994-95.
Following his collegiate playing career, Brown went to Europe to embark on a pro¬fessional career, eventually becoming one of Ireland's most popular players as a member of Tolka Rovers in the 1997-98 season. That year Brown averaged 24 points per game and appeared on the cover of one of Ireland's bas¬ketball magazines.
He returned to Arlington after that season to come back to school and earn his degree, which he did in 1999 when he earned a bachelor's degree in speech communication. Following his graduation, Brown served as the head junior varsity boy's basketball coach, and an assistant on the varsity staff at James Bowie High School, a position he held until coming to UT Arlington.
