Damone Brown played forward for Syracuse basketball for four seasons. He was a tall lanky player who could run the ball well, and had a decent mid range jump shot, and a solid free throw shooter. He was a solid defender, the perfect type of player for coach Jim Boeheim's zone defense. Brown was effective as Damone Brownan offensive rebounder and a good recipient of the alley-oop pass.

Brown came to Syracuse as a very skinny player, and barely played his freshman year, logging 53 minutes of game time. He would work to gain wait each year, though he would still be a think player his senior year. He started his sophomore year as a reserve, but by the eighth game of the season, he had replaced Eric Williams as the starting small forward.

He would continue to improve, and by his senior season Brown had developed into a solid player. He moved into the power forward position, and led the team in rebounding, and was second in scoring to Preston Shumpert. He had learned to make the mid range jump shot by that point in his career. He would earn Big East Second Team honors his senior season.

Brown would be a second round pick by the Philadelphia 76'ers in the NBA 2001 draft. He would be a reserve forward in the NBA for four seasons with four different teams: Philadelphia, Toronto, New Jersey and Washington.
