You Never Know Who Is Watching You

When you are an athlete, its always a good idea to be on your best behavior on and off the court. Why? Because you are always being watched. There could be a coach, a scout, a recruiter or just someone who knows someone in the stands.

How you carry yourself off the court is just as important. How you're wearing your clothes. How you're talking.

During the Inaugural End of Summer Shoot Out basketball tournament, there was a coach evaluating players who has some very high accolades. She's played for North Carolina. She's played in the WNBA. She's played for Team USA.

Because of NCAA rules, she couldn't speak to any players, coaches or parents. She could only watch. She was watching to see who could be a go fit for the program she represents today.

I'm talking about Coretta Brown, assistant Womens Basketball Coach at Tennessee Tech. A four-year standout at North Carolina, Brown played four seasons in the WNBA before beginning her coaching career. A three-time All-ACC honoree and the career record holder for 3-pointers made at UNC, Brown was selected 11th overall in the 2003 WNBA Draft by San Antonio before being traded to Indiana. Brown played three seasons with the Fever before playing her fourth and final season with the Chicago Sky.

In addition, Brown played for Team USA at the FIBA World Championships in Russia and was a member of the Team USA practice squad in preparation for the Olympics.
