Including wind-aided marks, that is the third-fastest time by a collegian this season, just .02 seconds off the NCAA-leading time. It was Brown's first official 100-meter race of the season and nearly bettered his PR of 10.18, except for the slight overage of wind.

Florida's Dedric Dukes won with a time of 20.38 which is the fastest time by a collegian this season, with Brown's time being the second fastest of the competition and fourth-fastest by a collegian this season.
