UAB signs Virginia Tech transfer Robert Brown
Former Virginia Tech starter Robert Brown is transferring to UAB.
UAB coach Jerod Haase said Thursday that Brown has signed to play for the Blazers. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound guard started 25 of 32 games for Virginia Tech last season. He was the Hokies' third-leading scorer, averaging 8.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
Brown also played in all 33 games as a freshman.
He will sit out next season under NCAA transfer rules and have two years of eligibility remaining.
Haase says Brown "fits in perfectly to the up-tempo, fast style of basketball that we want to play."
