Dec. 08: At 5-11, Maria Brown (Ouachita / Monroe, La.) is considered to be undersized for the position of power forward. But with an extremely strong body frame and quick feet she's able to use her muscle to overpower weaker front-line players, while her quick feet allow her to slice around slower opponents. Brown needs to develop more perimeter range to her arsenal of offensive moves. Summer 08: Strength is so important in this game, especially at the college level. Maria Brown brings just that to forward position and because of it she is as effective as players several inches taller than she is. The 6-footer from Monroe, La., is a bulldog in the paint and she utilizes her strength on both ends of the floor and is a fantastic rebounder. If she continues to work on her offensive repertoire she could be in the mold of Ashley Walker (Cal). She showed fundamental footwork and a nice close-range turnaround jumper. Her physicality and athleticism make her a handful at this level.
