Brown to transfer


Staff Report



Freshman forward Charles Brown III announced via Twitter he will transfer from Murray State.

In an interview with The News, Brown said he will miss the fans and the experience playing for Head Coach Matt McMahon.

Brown only played an average of eight minutes per game and appeared in only 15 games. During his only year, Brown averaged 1.4 points per game and shot 43 percent.

“Me and coach had a meeting about moving forward and he said that I was a great teammate, anybody would be happy to have me on a team,” Brown said. “But I think he said he couldn’t see me fitting in the system that they have next season.”

Brown said it was heartbreaking, but he said he understood that business was business and said there were no hard feelings.

He went on to continue to say this is all new to him and that he is just trying to see where he might be able to end up. 

Brown plans on bouncing back from this and going to a school where he will get an opportunity to showcase his skills.

“Just work, hard work thats all that’s left to do really,” Brown said.

Brown said the game of basketball has meant everything to him.

“I grew up watching and grew up playing,” Brown said. “Playing for Murray State, it really helped me become more passionate about the game.”
