Saint Joseph’s forward Charlie Brown has been named to the 2017 Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team, as voted on by the league’s head coaches.
A 6-6 freshman from Philadelphia, Brown is the Hawks’ second leading scorer and rebounder with 12.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. He has scored double figures in 24 games, including the last 16 consecutive. Brown reached a season-high of 22 points, with six three-pointers, against Fordham.
Brown is the Hawks’ leader in three-point percentage (37.6) and has set the Saint Joseph’s freshman record for three-point field goals in a season (67). He also tops SJU in free throw percentage, converting 81.9 percent from the line.
Brown, who was a three-time Rookie of the Week this season, is the Hawks’ second consecutive A-10 All-Rookie selection as Lamarr Kimble earned the honor in 2016.
He is joined on the All-Rookie Team by Mike Lewis II and Isiaha Mike of Duquesne; Jeff Dowtin of Rhode Island; and De’Monte Buckingham of Richmond, who was named the Rookie of the Year.
T.J. Cline of Richmond was selected as the A-10 Player of the Year while Hassan Martin of Rhode Island was chosen as the Defensive Player of the Year. George Mason’s Marquis Moore earned the Most Improved Player award with Kyle Davis of Dayton earning Sixth Man of the Year honors. Archie Miller of Dayton was named the Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year.
