Ex-Archbishop Molloy Star Moses Brown Records Double-Double in First College Game with UCLA

If Moses Brown’s first collegiate game goes the way it did when UCLA beat Purdue Fort Wayne Tuesday night, he may decide to enter the NBA draft sooner rather later.

The former Archbishop Molloy High School standout center scored 19 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in the Bruins’ 96-71 season-opening victory at Pauley Pavilion.

Brown, a former McDonald’s All-American, shot 9-10 from the field and was a present in the paint, forcing the Mastodons to rely on the three-pointer, which they shot just 24.3 percent from beyond the arc.

The listed seven-foot-one-inch Queens, New York, native earned praises from UCLA head coach Steve Alford, who called the big man “special.”

Bruins sophomore guard Kris Wilkes enjoyed a career-best with 27 points and 10 boards.

If Brown, who is listed at 245 pounds, continues to produce the way he did Tuesday night, will he be a one-and-done player, or will he wait until his body and abilities are more NBA ready?

Whatever the case may be, Brown and the young Bruin squad, who don’t have a senior on it, will be exciting to watch this season.
