Eric Brown 1985-89

Eric Brown was the best player on the Miami teams after the Hurricanes reestablished basketball in 1985 after a 14 absence. He led the Hurricanes in scoring all four of his seasons under Head Coach Bill Foster.

Brown finished his career with the Miami Hurricanes as the second leading scorer in school history. He fell just 28 points shy of Barry’s record. Brown holds four of the top five and six of the top 12 games in Miami history for free throw attempts.

In Brown’s Senior season he tied Barry’s school record with 24 games with at least 20 points. His 940 career free throw attempts set the school record. Brown also finished his career seventh in school history in rebounding.

For his career, Brown averaged 19.8 points per game and 7.1 rebounds per game. As a Senior Brown averaged 24.7 points per game and 8.1 rebounds per game.

Since the rebirth of Miami basketball in 1985, Brown holds the records for points scored, average points per game in a season and is third in rebounds in a season. Despite playing on teams that averaged two games above .500 per season, Brown might be the best player in Miami history since basketball returned to the U.
