Rocky Mount athletic director Mike Gainey confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Gryphon guard J'Kyra Brown, who played her first year of varsity basketball this past season, has verbally committed to play college basketball at East Carolina.

The rising junior, who missed her entire freshman year due a torn ACL, had a phenomenal season for her first time out of the gate. 

Brown was named to the 3-A All-State Girls Basketball Team last season to go with her Player of the Year honor from the Big East Conference. 

She led the Lady Gryphons to a school-record 25 wins (25-4), a share of the Big East Conference regular season title, the conference's tournament championship and an Eastern sectional final berth with eventual state champion South Central.

Brown scored 14.8 points a game, pulled down 5.3 rebounds an outing and dished out 3.1 assists a contest. She also popped in a team-leading 44 3-pointers.
