North Dakota State Men's Basketball Signs Guard Kory Brown
Release: May 14, 2012
FARGO, N.D. - Kory Brown, a 6-foot-4 guard from Hoffman Estates, Ill., has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his education and play men's basketball at North Dakota State University. NDSU head coach Saul Phillips made the announcement Monday, May 14.
Brown is the third high school player NDSU has added for the 2012-13 season. He joins forwards Brett VandenBergh of De Pere, Wis., and Dexter Werner of Bismarck, N.D., who inked during November's early signing period.
"Kory is a terrific all-around player who is able to score, create for others and rebound offensively," Phillips said. "It is his ability to disrupt defensively that makes Kory special. He is extremely long and athletic and has a motor that doesn't stop."
Brown averaged 17.9 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 2.2 steals per game last season while leading Elgin High School to a second straight conference championship. He was team MVP and an all-state second team pick.
North Dakota State finished 17-14 overall and tied for fourth in The Summit League with a 9-9 record. The Bison lost to Western Illinois in the quarterfinals of the Summit League tournament but were selected to the College Basketball Invitational presented by Zebra Pen.
