Boys Hoops: Brentwood, MRH Prep for Holiday Tournaments

The teams went a combined 1-3 last week but look to rebound following a week away from games this week.

It was an entertaining week on the court for the two boys teams.

The MRH Blue Devils went 1-2 in the always exciting Webster Classic last weekend, with losses in its first two games against SLUH and Marquette, and a final day win over Oakville.

MRH is off this week, and actually doesn’t have any games scheduled until after Christmas.

But when the Devils do get back to action, it’ll be quite a doozy, with MRH traveling down to Poplar Bluff to play in the Christmas tournament against a field that’ll include Memphis Hillcrest* – a 2009 Missouri state champion that features No. 1 national football recruit Dorial Green-Beckham.

The Brentwood Eagles lost their only game of last week, 63-51 at Ladue, in a contest that was much closer than the final score indicated.

Will Erby had 13 points and Marc Powells had 12 points and eight rebounds in the loss.

This week, the Eagles have no games scheduled, but will spend the week prepping for the MICDS Holiday Tournament, which begins with first-round games on Wednesday, Dec. 21.

*Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly mentioned another team. We are sorry for the error.

Good morning Cedric. We actually play Memphis Hillcrest not Springfield Hillcrest. If we are fortunate enough to pull out that win, we would then face either Tupelo MS or Sylvan Hills AR (feat. 6'5 Archie Goodwin- Univ of Kentucky signee, ranked #2 shooting guard in the country). Also would like to say to the Patch, keep up the good work covering the small areas and have a blessed holiday. Coach Frazier

Sorry about that mistake, coach, it's been fixed. Good luck to you and the Blue Devils during the Christmas tournament!
