Brown
USBasket.com is bringing you exclusive interview with NCAA star, Devonte Brown (6'2''-G-92) who is main player of Indiana St. University for past 4 years. He win a lot of individual awards in past few years. In 2015 and 2016 he was selected in All-District 2nd Team, also in MVC 2nd Team and he was chosen in All-Most Improved Team in 2015 for Missouri Valley Conference.

Q: Something for the start, you go to the Killeen High School, yes? How did you play basketball in there, how you decide that basketball is 'your thing' ?
A: I went to C.E. Ellison in Killeen, Texas, which is primarily a football school but also has a rich history in basketball. As a freshman, I was asked to play for the Varsity team but decided not to because I knew my game was far from where I wanted it to be. I knew from a young age that I wanted to play this game for as long as I could, and that would require work. I put everything I had into developing and improving every off season and it paid off - starting varsity as a sophomore and averaging close to a triple-double in my junior year. Killeen gave me an opportunity and I'm grateful to everyone there who helped me become the person and player I am today.

Q: In 2011/12 you decided to go on Indiana State and play for their team, is it tough to make decision like that, did other -University were 'in the game' maybe to choose them?
A: Choosing which college to attend was not an easy choice, but I know I made the right decision to play for Indiana State University. I chose Indiana State for two main reasons. The first was the home atmosphere that I experienced when I visited. The second, most importantly, God revealed to me certain aspects of college life that would help groom me into a well-rounded individual that other colleges couldn't offer.

Q: In 14/15 and 15/16 season you are recording amazing numbers. What drastic changed then first three years in Indiana St. ? Did you get second role in the team or you just figured out that you can play best basketball that you can offer?
A: I believe my all conference junior and senior campaigns were attributable to my work ethic and knowledge acquired from the veterans that came before me. Playing behind arguably the best point guard in the history of Indiana State basketball as an underclassman provided me the opportunity to see what made him so successful and emulate it. Due to my redshirt season, I had three years to gain an understanding on how I can be dominant at this level which was by studying game film, gaining a higher appreciation of what the game can offer on and off the court, and just overall growth and maturity as a man.

Q: Your plans for future? Do you aiming NBA or maybe some European team?
A: Coming from a Division 1 (NCAA) mid-major, I know that nothing is going to be handed to me at the next level. My agent and I will evaluate each situation presented and make whatever decision is best for my long-term career. I eventually want to play basketball at the highest possible level, whether that be in the NBA or Euroleague - I plan to give this game everything I have to offer and more.

Q: What do you think about basketball in Europe overall, in which team you would like to play if you don't go into NBA?

A: I think the European game is slightly different than the NBA. The game in Europe is more fundamental and the guards possess a high basketball IQ. I believe my game will fit well in the European game because I know what it takes to lead a team and play this team style of basketball. As far as teams, I don't have a preference on who I play for. I only desire to be in an environment where winning a championship is mandatory and that I can grow as player.

Q: What's your favorite NBA team?
A: Growing up in Texas I quickly became a huge Tracy McGrady fan. I've always liked the Houston Rockets and their style of play.

Q: How are you spending your free day's?
A: I always start the day off with shooting free throws and do these things; Normally I hang out with my teammates all day, spend the day talking to my family members, and or watch movies. I try not to be on my feet most the day and enjoy the off the days off - which are rare due to my love for the game.
I shot the three ball more consistently in my junior season than I did throughout my senior year. I made the decision this off-season to get hundreds of shots up everyday in order to maintain consistency as a true professional.

Q: Did you love to play some other sport in your free time or only just basketball?
A: Growing up I had fondness for all sports but I lean more to playing causal football or just random pick up basketball games.

Q: What do you think about Eurobasket.com, do you use it? Your friends?
A: I use Eurobasket.com regularly and greatly appreciate the site for allowing me to keep track of my friends / former teammates playing abroad. The website has become a great resource for me to become familiar with the European game and style of play that I am unable to see in the USA.

Q: For the end, what's your life motto ?
A: The motto that I live by is 'You will always reap what you sow in life'. If you sow honesty, truth, hard work, dedication, and faith you will reap a successful life.

Thanks to Devonte Brown on this interview and best of luck in his upcoming career.   




Joel Ayayi
Gonzaga lands their first post-Final Four commitment - 2 minutes ago
Gonzaga capitalized on their run to the national title game by landing a commitment from French point guard Joel Ayayi(6'4''-PG-00), who announced the news on twitter. Ayayi is an interesting long-term prospect, according to Draft Express. He has the size and the frame to eventually be a significant contributor in the college game, but he's raw. His handle needs work, as does his ability to create off the dribble and find teammates off of the bounce. That said, he's 6-foot-4 with a 6-foot...   [read more]
