Sad news: Maliq Brown explains why he wants to quit basketball…


Will Virginia go after Culpeper’s Maliq Brown a second time?


If Virginia pursues Maliq Brown through the transfer portal, that would be quite logical.

After two years of playing for Syracuse, 6-foot-8, 220-pound sophomore Brown revealed that he had entered the portal. When Brown was a 3-star recruit by the major services and played for Cade Lemcke at neighboring Blue Ridge School, UVA expressed some interest in him. Brown is from Culpeper.



However, Brown has developed as an Orange player and seems like the sort of player the Cavaliers might use.


Some Syracuse observers believed that Brown, who shot nearly 70 percent from the field last season (69.8), was the most valuable or most important player on the Orange roster. He averaged 9.5 points and 7.2 rebounds per game and played a little more than 29 minutes per outing this past season.



In one game against Duke, in Durham, he put up 26 points on an 11-of-16 shooting performance, adding 7 rebounds in 32 minutes.


Both UVA and Virginia Tech recruited Brown out of Blue Ridge, but both programs decided to go in a different direction.

Certainly Brown could add some physicality and punch to the Cavaliers’ lineup.
