Randi Brown

NEW ORLEANS – One of the all-time greats in New Orleans women’s basketball history is returning to her alma mater. Randi Brown was officially named the Privateers’ new Director of Operations on Thursday.

Brown (2014-18) becomes the first Privateer alum to join Coach Keeshawn Davenport’s staff in her now 12 seasons as head coach.

The former Privateers standout guard had one of the most decorated careers in program history. Brown became one of two women in program history to surpass the 2,000-point mark. In her career (2014-18), Randi scored 2,130 points, second only to Sandra Hodge (2,824).

“I always feel like everything comes full circle so this is definitely one of those moments,” said Brown. “I’m happy to be in a position where I can help the team be successful. This has always been my favorite group of coaches to play for so to work with them now is truly a blessing. They have always been family to me. I’m excited for the journey and to help give these ladies the best student-athlete experience going forward.”

Brown also crushed the record for career three-pointers made. In her time on the Lakefront, she sank 256 three-pointers. Second on the list is 187 made by Shanna Cook. Also, Brown has the single game record for points (45) and three-pointers made (9).

Brown initially came to the Privateers from Central Catholic High School in Houma. She played in 113 games and started 91. Brown was a three-time All-Southland member and earned First Team recognition as a senior in 2017-18.

“You smile when you hear the name Randi Brown because if you don’t know what she’s done already for UNO you’ve been sleeping in a cave,” said Coach Keeshawn Davenport. “She is a special person who was a lady of impact in her four years as a student-athlete.”

Davenport continued, “It’s great to have someone on my staff who has been there and done that. She understands our system, how I operate and what I stand for. She’s closer in age to our student-athletes and can better relay the message of what it means to be a lady of impact on and off the court.”
