After missing last season due to an injury suffered in preseason practice, D'Aundray Brown is eager to get back out on the court and showcase his skills. Capable of playing either forward position, he will most likely move away from the basket this year in order to better utilize his quickness and defensive skills. One of the top defenders in the Horizon League, Brown has the size and strength to defend bigger players, while also possessing the speed and agility to match-up with quicker guards on the perimeter. Brown is instant energy for the Vikings, coming up with loose balls on the floor, out-working the opposition for rebounds and sacrificing his body to get another possession for his team.
