A year after MRH gave the Bradley Beal-led Red Devils a scare, it's a whole new game.
The Maplewood Richmond Heights boys basketball team followed a 61-60 heartbreaker loss to Hazelwood Central on Friday with a 64-30 home win over the Red Devils of Chaminade. An article on STLhighschoolsports.com noted that, last year, MRH gave the Bradley Beal-led Red Devils a scare well into that game. This year, MRH lead 36-23 at the half and outshot Chaminade 19-6 in the third quarter, the article notes. Read more about Saturday's victory—including quotes from the players—on STLhighschoolsports.com. MRH will next host Brentwood (9-10) on Tuesday. The Eagles are led by junior Will Erby, who is shooting for 11.7 points per game on average. They aim to halt a four game losing streak.

Many thanks to the student councils of Brentwood High School and Maplewood Richmond Heights for sharing this article with the community. Have some news to share? E-mail editor Ryan Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org In an effort to build a positive relationship, in 2010 the student council at Brentwood High School approached the Maplewood High student council to brainstorm how to build a sense of community between the rival schools. This was the beginning of the Game for a Difference, a fundraiser shared by the schools at the MRH-BHS varsity boys’ basketball game each year. Student leaders from each school rally to raise money for a worthy cause. In 2010, the “Shake the Stands” fundraiser went to victims of the devastating earthquake in …

Meanwhile, the girls team will try to improve on their 2-5 record after a break in play for the holidays.
Brentwood High School's basketball programs have hit a rough patch recently. The Eagle boys team is in the middle of a three-game losing streak, after consecutive defeats to Ladue, SLUH and Trinity Catholic during the final days of December. Brentwood’s last win came in the third-place game at the Valley Park Tournament on Dec. 2. But things aren’t likely to stay that way for the Eagles, who have a series of highly winnable games coming up in January, including a new year’s opener on Thursday night at Principia. That will be followed by Brentwood’s South Central Athletic Association conference opener on Friday against Bayless. Both games will happen on the road and are scheduled to tip off at 6:30 p.m. Brentwood’s first home game of 2012 …

This weekly update also includes news about the Brentwood boys team and the MRH girls and boys teams.
With just a few more days of school left until the holiday break, most of the local high school sports teams will find themselves in practice mode this week, with very few games scheduled until holiday tournament time begins the day after Christmas. Just about everybody was in action, with lots of mixed results, except for the Maplewood Richmond Heights and Brentwood boys basketball teams, which both had the week off and spent their time practicing everyday after school. MRH (3-3) will do the same again this week, as it has no games on the schedule, and won’t be back in action on the court until next week, when the Blue Devils will travel down to Poplar Bluff (MO) for the nationally-renowned Poplar Bluff Holiday Invitational Tournament. …

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 …

A thrilling Blue Devils win over rival Eagles gave MRH the consolation championship.
In girls hoops last week, MRH won two of the three games it played, and took home the consolation championship at the Whitfield Invitational, after a thrilling 39-38 victory over archrival Brentwood in the consolation championship game. Senior Antonia Lee, who had a career-high 24 points in the semifinals against St. Elizabeth’s, had 17 points in the consolation final, which MRH trailed 27-12 at halftime, but then outscored Brentwood 20-2 in the third quarter to spark itself to the win. This week, MRH will be back at Whitfield for its only game of the week, Friday night at 4:30 p.m., in a non-conference matchup against the Warriors, who were the runners-up in last week’s tournament. Brentwood fell to 1-6 on the season after that loss to …

The Blue Devils performed well in a competitive tournament in Arkansas while the Eagles started the season with a 3-2 record.

This week, the Blue Devils will be competing in the Webster Classic Tournament at Webster Groves High School, beginning with a first-round game against Saint Louis University High, Thursday evening at 5:30 p.m. The Brentwood boys hoops team also had a good week. The Eagles took third …
