Tomeka Brown, a former WNBA player and standout at Ohio State University, enters her second season as UC's Director of Basketball Operations.
Brown spent the 2006-07 season at Columbus Africentric Early College School serving as the varsity girls assistant coach and as a long term intervention specialist in the area of social studies. She helped guide the program to city, district, regional and state championships in her first year with the team and was instrumental in the development of one Player of the Year, three all-city members, and two all-district honorees.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, she was a four-year letterwinner on the Buckeyes women's basketball team where she finished 11th in school history in career steals and 20th in career assists. She was twice named honorable mention all-Big Ten and was glorified with ESPN's SportsCenter "Play of the Day" in 2001 after she landed the game-winning buzzer beater in the first round of the WNIT. In 2002, she was selected by the WNBA's Orlando Miracle as a fourth-round draft pick.
Brown holds a bachelor's degree in African American Studies from Ohio State (2003).
