Sept. 20, 2005

Baltimore, Md. - Junior guard Gerald Brown has enrolled as a full-time student at Loyola College and has joined the Greyhound men's basketball team, Head Coach Jimmy Patsos announced today.

Brown, who transferred from Providence College after last season, will sit out this season due to NCAA year-in-residence requirements and have two seasons of eligibility remaining when he becomes eligible to play for Loyola during the 2006-2007 campaign.

"We are very excited that Gerald has chosen to continue his education here at Loyola," says Patsos.

Brown played two seasons for the Friars and averaged 7.1 points per game in 15 games. He scored a career-high 16 points against the University of Michigan.

A Baltimore native, Brown attended Frederick Douglass High School and led his team to a 28-0 record and the Class 2A state title as a senior. He averaged 19.5 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.

"I'm happy to be back home with family," says Brown. "Being here at Loyola with my coaches and teammates is like having more family with me. I'm glad to be back home with my family."

"There have been many great Baltimore players who have been able to succeed at the college level," says Patsos. "We feel Gerald can be one of those great players."
