A sophomore guard from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Jillian Brown quickly became an important part of Northwestern’s women’s basketball team, ranking third in minutes played last season as a freshman, behind veterans Veronica Burton and Courtney Shaw. This season, Brown said she will likely take on an even larger role with the departure of Burton and Lauryn Satterwhite.

To Brown, basketball is not just a game, but a tradition and a community. The Daily spoke with Brown about her life as a student-athlete.
