One of the most explosive players to ever wear the scarlet and cream, Nafeesah Brown produced one of the best seasons in school history as a senior in 1993-94. She ranks 15th all time at Nebraska with 1,089 points. The 6-1 forward from Chicago, Ill., shredded opponents by averaging 20.2 points and 10.1 rebounds per game as a senior. Her 1993-94 scoring average ranks as the sixth-best single-season mark in school history, while her rebounding average ranks as the second-best mark in the NU record books. Brown's career rebounding average of 8.6 boards per game also ranks as the second-best mark at Nebraska, while her 16.3 points per game career average is the sixth-best figure in school history.

Brown earned first-team All-Big Eight honors as a senior in 1993-94, after claiming honorable-mention all-conference accolades in 1992-93.

Brown earned second-team NJCAA All-America honors as a sophomore at Westark Community College in Fort Smith, Ark., averaging 18.4 points and 9.9 rebounds in her career while scoring 1,281 points, before transferring to Nebraska for her junior season. In her first year at Nebraska in 1991-92, Brown suffered a knee injury that sidelined her for the year after appearing in six games, but she was granted a medical hardship to extend her career.

Brown helped Nebraska to the first NCAA Tournament win in school history with 26 points, 13 rebounds and six steals in an 81-58 win over San Diego in Lincoln on March 17, 1993.

Brown's 26-point effort against San Diego was a career high until connecting for 32 points in an 84-71 win at Missouri on Jan. 23, 1994. She posted career highs with 16 rebounds on three different occasions.

Brown and her husband, former Nebraska football letterwinner Ed Morrow, make their home in Lincoln.
