JUCO Three- Point Specialist Signs With Edward Waters

JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- Junior college transfer Amariah Brown has signed a letter of intent to play at Edward Waters College. Brown, a 5'4 guard from Hartford, Connecticut, comes to EWC from Roxbury Community College in Roxbury Crossing, Massachusetts where she played for head coach Mark Leszczyk. Last season, she helped lead the Tigers to their first National Junior College Athletic Association Division-III National Championship in program history.

Brown led the NJCAA Division-III in three-point shooting, last season connecting on 47.1% of shots from the bonus sphere, while also averaging 10.0 points per contest. In her sophomore season, Brown started 21 of 27 games for RCC, averaging 32.8 minutes per game.

In her freshman year, Brown appeared in 13 games at Lincoln College of New England, where she averaged 22.3 points per game. Brown also shot 57.0% from the floor and connected on 49.5% from three-point range.

Brown played her high school basketball at Bulkeley High School in Hartford, Connecticut.

She will join a Lady Tiger program that set a school-record with 21 wins and finished second in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference. Edward Waters will return one of the most experienced teams in the conference next season after losing only one senior.
