The accolades for Salmen Lady Spartans senior basketball player Kalani Brown just keep pouring in. Brown, a six-foot-six inch center, was named the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Farm Bureau/Louisiana Miss Basketball for the second consecutive year. Brown, who is bound for the Baylor Bears on a basketball scholarship, capped off her superb high school career with her most recent honor. Brown averaged a double-double as a senior scoring 23 points per game and pulled down 11.8 rebounds per contest. Brown also averaged 3.4 blocks per outing. Salmen’s Lady Spartans finished the state runner up in Class 4A this year with Brown helping to lead her team to state titles as a sophomore and junior. Brown was named the Most Outstanding Player twice in the Class 4A state championships and was selected a McDonald’s All-American. Brown is only the third player to win the Louisiana Miss Basketball honor twice, joining former Capitol High and LSU standout Seimone Augustus (2001 and 2002) and ex-Pineville star Kisha Jones (1997 and 1998). Brown is the daughter of former NBA star P. J. Brown and ex-Louisiana Tech star Dee Brown, who served as an assistant coach for the Lady Spartans and served as the head coach of Kalani’s AAU team.
