MAY 16, 2023 — On Saturday, May 13, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, former UTSA men's basketball star Devin Brown joined other local legends as a member of the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame – becoming the first UTSA student-athlete to be enshrined in the Hall.
Brown was the first of only two Roadrunners with their number retired among the rafters at the Convocation Center. Brown held the UTSA career scoring title with 1,922 points from the end of his career in 2002 until the 2019-20 campaign saw Jhivvan Jackson, and later Keaton Wallace, move him to third on the all-time list.
Brown averaged 18.3 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists during his time in the blue and orange. A multi-dimensional player, he ranks among the UTSA top 10 in nine other career statistics.
As a four-year starter for the Roadrunners from 1998-2002, he was a three-time All-Southland Conference first-teamer after earning UTSA's very first program conference Freshman of the Year award— garnering the 1998 Southland Conference award.
He was also the first Roadrunner to register a triple-double, a 33-point, 11-rebound, 11-assist performance against Louisiana Monroe in February 2001.
Truly a locally-grown basketball star, Brown was raised in San Antonio since he was just six months old and graduated from South San Antonio West Campus High School prior to his career at UTSA.
After completing his prolific tenure with the Roadrunners, Brown became the only UTSA player to play for the San Antonio Spurs – and only the second Roadrunner to appear in an NBA game. He went on to score 3,352 points in 465 career NBA games from 2002 to 2010, highlighted by his 2006-07 season with the New Orleans Pelicans in which he averaged 11.6 points and 4.3 rebounds, while shooting 42 percent from the floor.
After signing with the Spurs as an undrafted rookie, he went on to earn Co-Rookie of the Year honors in the United States Basketball League in 2002 and was the Player and Rookie of the Year in the National Basketball Developmental League in 2003.
Brown made his NBA debut on the road at Memphis on November 4, 2002 and his first NBA start on April 11, 2003 at Sacramento. He played in 67 games, including 12 playoff games and two in the Finals during the Spurs' 2005 NBA championship season.
The San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame honors those who have made an impact in the world of sports and have ties to San Antonio. Joining Brown in the class of 2023 are: USA Track & Field Olympic Coach Rose Monday, four-time NCAA DI national tennis champion and Trinity University Tennis Coach Emilie Foster, former Churchill High School Volleyball Coach Wanda Bingham and professional golfer Jimmy Walker.
They were inducted at the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute presented by H-E-B on Saturday, May 13, 2023 in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
The San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute traditionally attracts more than 1,000 attendees, rolls out more than $500,000 worth of auction items, and serves as San Antonio Sports' largest annual fundraiser. Proceeds from the Tribute benefit San Antonio Sports' kids programs.
The San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame is a partnership between San Antonio Sports, the City of San Antonio, and San Antonio Express-News.
