The men’s basketball team’s greatest scorers may be confined to the sideline, as Brown boasts the fourth-highest scoring coaching staff in the country. A recent survey ranked the top 2011-12 coaching staffs by their scoring as Division 1 players, and the University of Tennessee led all programs with 5,381 points. Auburn is a distant second with 4,373 points, and Valparaiso rounds out the top three with 4,146.
Brown ranks fourth with 3,915 points. The Bears’ staff, under the tutelage of Head Coach Jesse Agel (pictured above), features former Vermont standout T.J. Sorrentine, who led the Catamounts to an opening round upset victory over Syracuse in the 2005 NCAA Tournament. Agel and Sorrentine are joined this season by newcomers Ryan Schneider, who scored over 1,000 points at Marist, and Kenyon Spears, a 2001 graduate of Lamar.
Not often does Brown comes out ahead of Kansas or Duke when it comes to basketball, but the Jayhawks rank fifth with 3,834 points and the Blue Devils follow with 3,805.
