Coach Brown on Venus “We have been waiting for Michael to get on the courts since he got here. He has done a great job at handling the adversity in front of him. Physically, he is stronger than he has ever been. He is putting his mental game together. He can hit every shot and has a lot of experience that will separate him from a lot of players. If he maintains his composure and competes well with adversity, then he will be one of the top ten players in college this year.” Fall 2007 Sat out the fall and is expected to join the team in January.
