Basketball talent runs in Brownlee family

January 12, 2007

Albany - Darton basketball coach Laura Blackwell knew she was getting a talented player when she signed Tifton's Justina Brownlee.  

The freshman is one of the top two scorers on this year's Darton team and is in the top ten in the state in rebounding and steals.

It is no surprise since Brownlee's brothers and sister are also talented basketball players.

Oldest brother Stanley is now playing for a NAIA school in Memphis after playing for ABAC last year. T

win brother Justin is in prep school in Atlanta where he is considered a future NBA prospect.

Younger sister Stephanie plays for the Tift County Lady Blue Devils.

All of which made one on games at the Brownlee home maybe the toughest in the nation.

 Justina Brownlee said "I followed in my older brother's footsteps. Just playing with him every day in one on one was a real workout (laughing)."

Head coach Laura Blackwell said "We are working on individual moves and individual things that she needs to improve on each year and that is what the two-year level is all about."

Darton will host Georgia Perimeter Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at Cavalier Arena.
