Norfolk State has a new Spartan.
Her name is Ebony Brown, who signed for the 2011-12 season. The 5-10 small forward from Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy (Dwight Howard is an alum) earned All-Metro Honorable Mention by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution her senior year. She was also one of 23 players selected to the Class A 2011 all-state team by the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association.
Brown averaged 11.3 points and 4.5 rebounds per game as she led Southwest Atlanta to a 24-5 record for the 2010-11 season after helping the team advance to the semifinals of the state tournament in 2010.
Brown joins NSU’s other 2011 class members: Quineshia Leonard from Hampton High School and Ashley Dillard from Woodside High School. Both were named to the 2011 All-Peninsula District Second Team by the league’s coaches after signing with the Spartans during the November signing period.
