Sasha Brown played basketball at Sierra College from 2010-2012. Her inspired play earned her a scholarship to Menlo College and the admiration of countless Wolverine fans. While she didn't often light up the scoreboard, she always drew the toughest defensive assignment, blocked out like a brick wall and came up with rebounds and buckets at key times.
What stood out most about Sasha was her enthusiasm, her controlled aggression and her endless energy. She could be a vocal leader, but she led by example as she dove for loose balls and took charges. She had an intense scowl that struck fear into Wolverine opponents and an ear-to-ear smile that lit up the world around her. Many talk about the Wolverine Way, but only a few, like Sasha, have what it takes to live it on and off the court.
Sasha Brown died a few days ago and we will miss her. But, she'll be with us every time the lights are switched on at Goto/Goldenberg Court and the Sierra College Wolverines take the floor.
As you'll see from these photos, Sasha Brown was naturally the center of attention. Please enjoy and download freely. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mattfolsom/sets/72157634662594116/
