Just two months ago, Josh Brown was playing a major role in Temple’s offense. And just two months and two days’ post Temple’s March Madness appearance, senior point guard, Josh Brown, has torn his Achilles.

Brown heavily contributed to the Owls successful 21-12 season record, as well as clinching the AAC regular season title. Within the American Athletic Conference, Brown led the league in most minutes played (36.2 mpg) in addition to being second in assists (4.9 apg). Not only was Brown topping the conference with some of his stats, he was among the top ten in the country for assist/turnover ratio (3.5:1). Until further notice, Levon Alston Jr. will be expected to step up, considering Brown started in 32 of 33 games last season.

Temple’s team physician, Dr. Milo Sewards, is scheduled to perform surgery on Brown, Wednesday May 25th at Temple University Hospital. A timetable for his recovery has not been announced.
