Another Loss for Hokies: Sophomore Brown Transferring

Virginia Tech has announced sophomore guard Robert Brown is transferring.

Coach James Johnson said Wednesday the Clermont, Fla., native will leave after the spring semester.

Brown was the Hokies' third-leading scorer, averaging 8.3 points, but his season went the same way the Hokies' did.

Heralded as a shooter with range, Brown averaged 14.4 points in Virginia Tech's first eight games as the Hokies started 7-1, then entered a prolonged shooting slump. He finished the season shooting 33.1 percent from the field and was 24 of 102 from 3-pointer range (23.5 percent).

Brown is the fifth player to leave Virginia Tech since 2010, joining Ben Boggs, Tyrone Garland, Manny Atkins and Dorian Finney-Smith.

The Hokies also lost top recruit Montrezl Harrell to Louisville when Seth Greenberg was fired after last season.
