Devon Brown is the second-leading scorer in Virginia high school girls' basketball history, with 2,728 points during her four years at Waynesboro High School.

Six new players dot the 2008-09 Liberty women's basketball team roster, including one junior college transfer and five freshmen. LibertyFlames.com will provide an introduction to each newcomer, leading up to the team's Nov. 14 season opener against VCU. The series continues today with freshman guard Devon Brown.

Scouting Report
Brown, a 5-10 guard, graduated from Waynesboro High School as one of the most prolific scorers in Virginia history. She averaged over 25 points per game all four years of high school and finished her career as the second-leading scorer in Commonwealth history, with 2,728 points. Brown is also a gifted rebounder, who ranks third in Virginia history, with 1,329 career boards.

As a senior, Brown led the Little Giants to a 26-4 record and an appearance in the Group AA state championship game. In the state title contest, Waynesboro was defeated by current Liberty teammate Kylee Beecher's Hidden Valley squad. At year's end, Brown was tabbed co-state player of the year.

Brown, who will wear No. 3 with the Lady Flames, has battled injury since arriving on the Liberty campus this fall. As a result, she is a candidate to redshirt her freshman season.

Coach Carey Green on Brown
"Devon is a very talented player, who set high school scoring records in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Her role on this year's team is currently in question, due to injury. However, Devon possesses a tremendous understanding of the game and will be a major contributor to our program, once the opportunity is presented."
