NEW YORK -- Former Woodlawn star Joel Brown finished third in the men's 60-meter hurdles at the Millrose Games last night at Madison Square Garden. "I got out well. I just didn't finish well," Brown said. Brown, who turned 28 Thursday, led over the first two hurdles but couldn't fight off two of his fellow Olympic prospects, ex-Mississippi star Antwon Hicks and former Howard University runner David Oliver, over the final three barriers. Hicks finished in 7.53 seconds, the fastest time by an American runner this winter, with Oliver second in 7.59 and Brown at 7.66.
