Alba Berlin announced Thursday that it has signed guard Bobby Brown, who will begin his professional career in Germany after playing four years of college basketball at Cal State Fullerton. Brown (188, 22) signed a one-year deal with the club. The point guard had a stellar college career with the Titans, finishing as the school's alltime leading scorer. Brown was named team MVP and a first-team All-Big West Conference selection last season after averaging team-highs of 20.2 points and 5.1 assists per game.

"Every ambitious team needs three strong point guards, particularly if it plans to run deep into the playoffs" Alba coach Luka Pavicevic said in a statement on the team's website. "After the signing of Goran Jeretin, we wanted to add one more guard to the squad. We looked for a young, talented and hungry player. Bobby Brown fulfills that profile exactly. We are sure that he will become an important part of the team."
