|Brown appeared in 14 games during his freshman campaign in 2013-14.
Vitto Brown enters his sophomore season looking to build upon a freshman year in which he appeared in 14 games. His 6-foot-8 frame combined with a 7-foot-3 wingspan gives him tremendous length on the interior for Wisconsin. Brown's interior strengths, combined with a soft jumpshot that extends to 3-point range, should have him in contention for reserve frontcourt minutes in 2014-15. An accomplished singer, Brown and his family singing group, Shades of Brown, have performed the national anthem at the Kohl Center on two different occasions.2014-15
