In what was a relatively star-studded roster, Boston Celtics’ Jaylen Brown led Team World to a 108-97 victory over Team Africa. He scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting and grabbed three rebounds.

Team Africa’s roster consisted of first and second-generation African players, led by Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo.

In what was an exhibition game Saturday for only the second time on African soil, fans were able to watch the game they love but rarely get to see. This was the last step in a trip that brought stars from across the league to conduct basketball camps for selected teens throughout the continent.

Coming Into His Own

Brown put on a show including some of these highlight plays throughout the game:

This is just another great experience Brown has included in his summer. He continues to grow as a player, leader, and ambassador for the game of basketball. Brown is coming into his own in the NBA very quickly and this is another great thing for him.

Brown is coming off of a hot summer in the summer league and continued his great play in Africa. Only a little more time until we get to see all of his hard work pay off in a Celtics jersey.

I am a recent graduate from Indiana University with a degree in Sport Marketing and Management and minors in business and marketing. I have been involved in basketball my entire life and want to make a career out of it. My eventual goal is to become an NBA Personnel Scout. I am a huge North Carolina Tar Heels fan as my dad and grandfather got their undergraduate degrees there. I became a Celtics fan when they drafted Rajon Rondo back in 2006 as he was my favorite player due to his TRUE point guard abilities. After he was traded, and became all about his ego, I still remained a Celtics fan. When Isaiah Thomas was drafted by the Kings, he was my favorite player and then he eventually became a Celtic, working out perfectly.
