TMI cager breaks city scoring record

LeSean Brown, a senior at TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas, broke a citywide record January 12 for scoring the most points during a four-year career in high-school basketball.

The record formerly was held since 2010 by Paul Garnica, who scored 3,012 career points at Lee High School from 2006 to 2010. Brown broke the record with a three-pointer during a home game against San Antonio Christian Schools. The shot turned the tide for the Panthers, who won by 71-51. Brown, who averages 28 points per game this season, put up 37 points that night, for a total of 740 points this season and 3,024 for his career. With nine games left to play during the regular season, he is poised to surpass the former record by a substantial margin.

“We are so proud of LeSean and all of his successes at TMI,” said Athletic Director Becky Geyer. “Breaking the San Antonio prep career scoring record is an enormous accomplishment but no surprise to those who know him. LeSean has devoted countless hours in the gym developing his game. His discipline and self-motivation set him apart from his peers.”

At TMI, Brown is the recipient of an Alkek Scholarship, a four-year full-tuition merit award. Co-captain of the TMI varsity basketball team, he was named to TAPPS conference all-state first teams and District 3-4A Most Valuable Player for the past two seasons. A member of National Honor Society, he was a Commended Student in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship competition and was named an AP Scholar by the College Board. Brown also serves as a company commander in the TMI Corps of Cadets (JROTC).

He will attend the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he will study aeronautical engineering and will play basketball.
