AP: Dee Brown's Daughter Has No. 12 Duke Climbing
Women's Basketball 01/12/2017

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Lexie Brown's father is best known for his creative dunks. The daughter of Dee Brown is drawing attention for making a more mundane shot with uncommon consistency. The versatile Duke guard has made an Atlantic Coast Conference-record 53 consecutive free throws, and her poise is one reason why, after a one-year blip, the 12th-ranked Blue Devils are back among the top teams in women's basketball.
