ETSU sophomore sparks Bucs to two wins in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Nov. 27, 2022) – The UNLV Thanksgiving MTE All-Tournament team was announced Sunday evening after the tournament’s conclusion, as ETSU was represented by sophomore guard Nevaeh Brown (Charlotte, N.C.) on the team.

Brown was a sparkplug off the bench in all three games for ETSU, as the Bucs won the consolation bracket championship with wins over UAlbany and UC San Diego on Saturday and Sunday. She averaged 13.3 points per game with 40 total points. 

In the tournament opener against George Washington, Brown led the way with 16 points. She followed that performance with 14 points in the win over the Great Danes and finished the weekend with 10 points in the win over the Tritons.

The Northwest Florida State transfer had three rebounds in each game, while finishing with seven assists and six steals over the three games. For the weekend, she shot 15-31 from the floor, 3-5 from behind the arc and 7-8 from the free throw line.                                                      

UNLV won the tournament with three wins, while consolation champion ETSU, third place Louisiana Tech and runner-up Illinois State were the three teams to win two games. Other participants include George Washington, Stetson, UC San Diego and UAlbany.
