Stanford's Brown, Randle at NBA pre-draft combine

 

Stanford's Anthony Brown and Chasson Randle are keeping themselves busy this week at the NBA's annual pre-draft combine, which got under way Tuesday and runs through Sunday in Chicago.

The NBA Draft is scheduled for Thursday, June 25, in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Brown's impressive all-around game proved to be a valuable asset this season. Posting five double-doubles, Brown ranked second in scoring (14.8 ppg) and assists (94) but led the Cardinal in rebounding (6.9 rpg) and three-point shooting (44.1 percent). Brown, who scored in double figures in all but five games, finished his career with 1,562 career points, ranking 11th all-time in school history.

Regularly tasked with guarding the opponent's top scorer, Brown ranks second all-time on The Farm in minutes played (4,200) and fifth in three-pointers (218). Brown is one of seven players in school history to compile at least 1,500 points and 600 rebounds.

Randle averaged a team-best 19.6 points while shooting 40.3 percent overall and ranking 19th in the country with an 87.7 percent clip from the foul line. Named the Most Outstanding Player as Stanford captured its third NIT championship, Randle averaged 23.6 points over the tournament run. During his final season, Randle scored in double figures in all but one game while also leading the Cardinal in assists (112) and steals (50).

Against Old Dominion on March 31, Randle became Stanford's all-time leading scorer, passing Todd Lichti (2,336). Randle finished his career with 2,375 career points, ranking third all-time in conference history (Pac-8, Pac-10, Pac-12) behind UCLA's Don MacLean (2,608) and Arizona's Sean Elliott (2,555).

An Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American, Randle was Stanford's first Academic All-America First Team selection since Dan Grunfeld in 2006. He also was named the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year, becoming Stanford's second honoree in as many seasons following Dwight Powell in 2014.
