Brown and Young are contributing
Hope Brown and Ryan Young, Bethlehem Press’s 2018 athletes of the year from Bethlehem Catholic High School, have continued their basketball careers at Army West Point and Northwestern University, respectively.
Young finished Northwestern’s season opener with five points and five rebounds against Merrimack on Nov. 8.
Young led the Wildcats with 16 points in their victory over Providence on Nov. 13. He also had seven rebounds and three assists. It was Young’s second career start.
The Northwestern sophomore sat out his first season to redshirt.
Brown and her Army teammates staged a comeback to beat Air Force, 68-66, on Nov. 13.
Army’s first lead of the game came in the fourth quarter and after back-and-forth scoring, Brown hit a three pointer to give the lead back to Army with under 2:00 remaining.
Brown’s first collegiate points were scored three days earlier in Army’s game against Arizona State.
Brown attended the United States Military Academy Preparatory School last year.
