Maryland head coach Brenda Frese announced that rising junior, 5-9 guard Lexie Brown (Suwanee, Georgia) has been granted her release. This past season Brown averaged 13.3 points per game, was named to the All-Big Ten First Team and earned the Big Ten Tournament Most Outstanding Player award. She is the daughter of former NBA star Dee Brown.

“We appreciate all of Lexie’s contributions these past two years to our program,” Frese said. “With two Final Four appearances, a Big Ten regular season and tournament championship, it’s been an incredible ride. We wish Lexie nothing but happiness and success in her future.”

“I want to thank coach Frese, the staff and my teammates for two great seasons at the University of Maryland,” Brown said. “After talking with my family, I thought it was in my best interest to continue my education and pursue playing basketball at a university closer to my home. I truly enjoyed the friendships that I made and the outstanding support of the great Terp fans during my time in College Park.”
