Miami, Oklahoma – August 24, 2018 – Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) will induct eight individuals and one team into the NEO Athletic Hall of Fame at a ceremony on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Included among the honorees is Mr. Terry Brown.
Brown graduated from Clyde-Savannah Central High School in New York, where he finished his basketball career with 2,360 points and became the 2nd All-Time scorer in N.Y. state history. He was recruited to NEO by Hall of Fame head coach Larry Gipson.
During his NEO career, Brown led the Norsemen to the 1989 NJCAA National Championship, where he was the National Tournament MVP. He was also named an NJCAA All-American in 1989, and finished his NEO career as the 2nd All-time scorer with 1,007 points and 22.1 points per game.
“Downtown” Terry Brown was recruited by the University of Kansas in 1989. In 1991, he became the KU single season three-point leader, with 111 baskets. In only two seasons, his 200 three pointers rank him 5th on KU’s all-time three-point list. Brown finished his college career by playing in the NCAA National Championship game against Duke.
Brown successfully operated his own freelance graphic arts business for several years and now works for a major sports jewelry company.
The induction ceremony for Brown and the other honorees will take place in the Calcagno Family Ballroom in the Bruce G. Carter Student Union before the evening’s football game. Following the ceremony, the NEO Golden Norsemen football team will play against rivals Trinity Valley. Kickoff will be at 6 p.m. Tickets for the event are on sale now.
“The Hall of Fame is a legacy that we are very proud of at NEO and to have it in conjunction with the NEO vs. Trinity Valley game will make for a great day of NEO Athletics,” said Joe Renfro, interim athletic director. “We hope everyone will come out and support the event and the Norsemen.”
