From Coach:
Charles Brown will be the only senior on the Lions squad as he enters his fourth and final year at LMU... "He has led the WCC in steals the last two seasons, and was a real catalyst for our team during league play. He will be looked to as a key performer in our program taking a step up in the WCC... the coaching staff would like to see him become a little more verbal as a floor leader like he showed on the European trip... he has worked hard and improved with each season at LMU... Charles should have an outstanding senior year... he will need to be a little more consistent with his perimeter jump shot and shoot a higher percentage from the three-point line... the team needs him to be a scoring point guard as well as take care of the ball and keep his assist to turnover ratio in a positive area."
