Booted ‘Idol’ Ayla Brown Now Hopes For A ‘Banner’ Basketball Season

WRENTHAM, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ayla Brown may have been booted from American Idol, but she’s hoping for a “Banner” year in more ways than one.

Brown has a full-ride basketball scholarship at Boston College waiting for her and says she hopes the coach will allow her to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before games – even if she has to do it in her basketball uniform.

It won’t be out of character for her. Brown says she has sung the national anthem before her high school games as well as at Boston Red Sox games.

Brown says she hasn’t spoken with her college coach about singing before games, but it should work out to her benefit.

That’s because the coach recently told Brown’s Dad that the singing hoop star “has put Boston College on the map.”
