Meet Ian Brown, New Trier Boys Basketball Athlete of the Week: 10 Questions

Ian Brown is a senior wing for the Trevians who was an All-Tournament First Team selection on the Pontiac Holiday Tournament. Brown will play for Carnegie Mellon University next 12 months.

1. Do you could have pregame rituals or superstitions?

I assume the one thing for me is, we’ve a walkthrough before each game and before I head to the walkthrough I prefer to meditate and visualize success in the sport that’s about to occur. I prefer to see the sport in my head.

2. Why Carnegie Mellon?

I selected Carnegie Mellon principally because I wanted to seek out school with a great combination of academics and good athletics, and I’ll be within the business school and net 12 months. Carnegie Mellon plays within the (University Athletic Association), which is the one Division III conference that flies to conference games. So we’ll play teams in St. Louis, Georgia. That was a thing for me. And on the visit, they made me feel at home. It was great and I actually like Pittsburgh — that was my first time there.

3. What’s your favorite thing to do off the court?

Hanging out with my friends, and recently I’ve been spending more time with my brother and he got me back into constructing Legos. I forgot how fun it’s constructing legos. It’s sort of fun. I prefer to cook, too — steak and stuff like that.

4. Who’s your favorite athlete?

Needless to say I’d say Derrick Rose (NBA). The primary time I watched a Bulls game was in 2011, when he was at his peak. I used to be really captivated along with his athleticism with the Bulls within the 2010s. He’s not the player he once was, but the best way he’s battled against injuries has been really inspiring to me.

5. What’s your dream job?

I’m going into business school. I’m not 100% sure what I need to do. Something entrepreneurial or finance-focused can be cool. I’m not entirely sure what that appears like yet.

6. Last season, you sank 12 three-pointers in a game. How often do you consider that game or rewatch it?

Rarely, but when my confidence is down, I watch that game and see that I’m a reasonably good player. That’s how I can get myself the arrogance back. It was an awesome game of course.

7. Should you could play one other sport, what wouldn’t it be?

I’d say football. I used to play before highschool. It was quite a lot of fun to hit people. That’s why I liked it. I made a decision to stop for basketball, so it could be football.

8. Should you’re in Walgreens with a pair bucks, what are you purchasing?

Certainly one of those Fairlife chocolate milks with protein and perhaps a Rice Krispies Treat or one among the mango Arizona drinks.

9. What’s something people don’t find out about you?

I even have dual citizenship in Luxembourg. I even have a Luxembourg passport. Once I’m older I can live in any country within the European Union, and one thing I’ve considered is playing basketball overseas for a 12 months or two after college and dual citizenship would help with that if do have the chance.

10. What’s going to be key for you guys to get to where you would like to go this season?

After we move our ball and run our sets and play super unselfish, we’re really, really good. There are still times we get sped up. For instance in GBN game (38-34 loss on Friday, Jan. 5), we got sped up and played their pace and commenced forcing shots. For us to make a run to Champaign, we’d like to enhance coping with pressure. We’ll be playing teams which can be really athletic and fast. That may’t be what makes us crumble. So coping with pressure and playing as a team.
