Brown went 2-for-6 with a team-leading three RBIs in a pair of games at the 2013 Atlantic 10 Championship, including a critical go-ahead, two-run home run in GW's 5-4 victory over Rhode Island.

Brown's home run in the seventh inning gave the Colonials a 4-3 lead after an overnight weather delay. The senior also drew a crucial one-out walk in the bottom of the ninth to extend the inning before Xavier Parkmond's game-winning infield single.

For his efforts, Brown was the lone GW player to be named to the All-Championship Team.
