Career Highlights[edit]

During Lowe's four years at Brown, the team compiled a record of 45 wins and 16 losses, with the 1991 squad compiling a 13 and 1 record. The 1991 team went undefeated during the regular season and received a number two seeding in the NCAA tournament before finally to Maryland in the quarterfinals.

Lowe was coached at Brown by current Virginia Cavaliers coach Dom Starsia.[4]
