High school career

Brown played high school basketball at St. John's Preparatory School, which is located in Astoria, Queens, New York. He averaged 22.5 points and 6.6 assists per game as a senior. A Parade All-American, Brown was ranked among the top 25 high school recruits in the United States and was chosen to play at the 2000 McDonald's All-American Game and at the Roundball Classic All-Star game, after which he was named Most Valuable Player. As a McDonald's All-American, he recorded 11 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds. Brown chose to play college basketball with Connecticut because of "their winning tradition, the great players they had come through here, and just the whole total UConn. This is a big program."

Collegiate career

As a freshman, Brown was the starting point guard in all 32 of UConn's games. He scored a season-high 21 points against nationally-ranked Boston College on February 13, 2001, and recorded a season-best 12 assists in an overtime win over St. John's on January 6. After his sophomore season, Brown was averaging 9.2 points and 5.1 assists per game. He recorded the second-most assists for a sophomore in school history, getting 172. At the 2002 Big East Men's Basketball Tournament championship, he made a half-court shot at the closing seconds to seal the game vs Pittsburgh. Brown led UConn to an NCAA Division I Basketball title in 2004, as his team defeated Georgia Tech to close his senior season.

Professional career

After leaving UConn, Brown performed workouts for the 2004 NBA draft, but went undrafted.
