PRINCESS ANNE, Md. --The National Collegiate Athletic Association and Black Coaches and Administrators (BCA) is marking its seventh year of men's participation and 11th year of women's participation at its Achieving Coaching Excellence Program (ACE). The program is designed to educate the next generation of successful collegiate basketball coaches. With that, G. Jamal Brown was selected to attend based on the value that the ACE Selection Committee felt he would bring to the program.

The ACE Program is a four-day intensive curriculum that covers both on-and-off court instructions. The sessions are facilitated by respected coaches, as well as industry professionals. It is an opportunity for talented ethnic minority coaches to develop their coaching skills in the areas of leadership, communications, campus and community relations, as well as media training and program management.

Brown has 14 years of collegiate coaching experience, and served as head coach in 2006 of his alma mater, South Carolina State, where he was a standout student-athlete. Prior to that appointment, Brown was named top assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Tennessee State University for three seasons.

Within the business of collegiate basketball, Brown has earned a reputation as a highly successful recruiter, and has recruited several players that have earned conference recognition while enrolled where he has coached.

The ACE Program will take place at the NCAA Headquarters June 5-8 in Indianapolis, Indiana. To date, 161 ethnic minority coaches have taken part in the ACE Program.
