“I am so excited to be joining the SAGU women’s basketball staff. I believe God has directed me in this path to both positively influence my life and for me to positively influence the lives of others while at SAGU. Coach Sons will be an amazing mentor and I can’t wait to get this season started,” stated Brown.
