On May 7, 2012, Keith Brown became just the seventh women's basketball head coach in the history of the program. He was no stranger to the program serving as the top assistant and head of recruiting for five seasons.
"I am excited to be promoting Keith to head women's basketball coach," said Georgetown Director of Athletics Lee Reed. "He has been an integral part of our success over the past few seasons and I am confident he can sustain the program's momentum. Keith is a proven recruiter and motivator, he has the ability to push these student-athletes both on the court and in the classroom and I look forward to what he will bring to the program."
Brown has been a part of three-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances as he helped the Hoyas move onto the national stage. This past season, Georgetown went 23-9 overall with a mark of 11-5 to tie for fourth place in the extremely competitive BIG EAST Conference.
The Hoyas defeated three ranked teams in 2011-12 and were ranked in both the AP and ESPN/USA Today Polls for the entire year, at one point reaching No. 10 on the AP Poll and No. 11 on the ESPN/USA Today Poll. The Blue & Gray finished the season with an RPI of 26, as well as being ranked 18th and 17th on the AP and the ESPN/USA Today Polls, respectively.
In 2010-11, Brown and the Georgetown squad returned to the Sweet 16 posting an overall record of 24-11 and a mark of 9-7 in the BIG EAST. The Hoyas defeated five ranked teams and were ranked in both the AP and ESPN/USA Today Polls for the entire year, at one point reaching No. 11 on the AP Poll and No. 12 on the ESPN/USA Today Poll.
The Hoyas tied for seventh in league play and earned their second-consecutive berth in the NCAA Tournament. Georgetown fell in the Sweet 16 to Connecticut, 68-63, despite leading almost the entire game.
The Blue & Gray's first NCAA Tournament berth of the three came during the 2009-10 season where Brown helped the Hoyas to a 26-7 overall record with a 13-3 mark in BIG EAST play along with a 13-0 record at McDonough Arena. Georgetown posted a 16-game win streak at one point in the season and finished tied for second in the BIG EAST. The Hoyas spent 12 weeks in the national rankings and earned the program's second-ever bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Fifth-seeded Georgetown defeated Marist in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, but fell to fourth-seeded Baylor University in the second round. The Blue & Gray led the nation in turnover margin (+8.12) with a fast-paced tempo and also ranked third in steals per game (12.9).
The postseason run began in 2008-09 when GU managed a 20-14 overall record, the program's first 20-win season since 1992-93. The Hoyas had an impressive run through the WNIT advancing to the quarterfinals and going further than any team had advanced in postseason play in the program's history.
In his time on the Hilltop, Brown has mentored players such as senior Sugar Rodgers, who is GU's first three-time First Team All-BIG EAST honoree and three-time All-American. In five seasons he has had players earn three All-America awards, seven All-BIG EAST Honors, one BIG EAST Rookie of the Year and a State Farm Three-Point Shootout invitation.
As an assistant, Brown was the head of recruiting for the Hoyas and he handled the team's scheduling. He played an active role in recruiting the classes of 2012 (6th), 2013 (12th) and 2014 (25th) all of which received national recognition from a number of recruiting outlets. Rodgers was his first McDonald's All-American recruit.
He came to the Hilltop after spending 11 years on the AAU circuit. In 1996, Brown was the AAU Director of Coaching for the Maryland Sparks before he helped create the Maryland Mystics AAU program. During his eight-year tenure with the Mystics, Brown helped the squad to three national AAU Tournament Final Fours.
Brown's Maryland Mystics teams compiled a 112-18 record as the girls progressed from ages 11-15. The Mystics won the Potomac Valley Regional Championships in each age group, in addition to qualifying for the AAU Nationals in six-consecutive seasons.
He led the U-15 Fairfax Stars to the Potomac Valley Regional Championship for the first time in their history before the team advanced to a fifth-place finish at the AAU National Championship in 2006; he was recognized by the organization for his work with the program. One year later, Brown roamed the sidelines for the Stars U-16 team that advanced to the 2007 Nike Elite Team Nationals in the Silver Division. In addition, they were the runner-up at the Battle of Murfreesboro (Tenn.).
Over his AAU career, Brown has been responsible for assisting more than 30 players earn Division I scholarships.
An educator at every level, Brown was a sixth grade teacher in the Prince George's County Public School system from 1995-99 and taught special education and coached basketball at the Cesar Chavez Middle & High Charter School, a post he held for two years.
