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 …

The Blue Devils performed well in a competitive tournament in Arkansas while the Eagles started the season with a 3-2 record.
Maplewood Richmond Heights boys basketball coach Corey Frazier tallied his 200th career win after a successful weekend of games for the Blue Devils in Arkansas. MRH traveled to Jonesboro (AR) to compete in the nationally prestigious Hurricane Classic, and won two of three games. Junior Kahlid Hagens and senior Jake Hensel were named to the all-tournament team, with Hagens averaging 20.3 points/game and Hensel knocking down nearly every three-pointer he took. 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 …

The Eagles cause 25 turnovers and cruise to 64-53 win over Valley Park on Tuesday.
VALLEY PARK – The Brentwood boys basketball team knows that on most nights, and against most opponents, it’s going to face a severe size disadvantage. The Eagles don’t have anyone taller than 6-foot-3, and on Tuesday night, went into a game against a taller Valley Park team. But what Brentwood does have is a bunch of fast, pesky guards that can really pressure the ball and make it difficult for an opponent to run any kind of structured offense. That’s exactly what the Eagles did to the host Hawks, forcing a whopping 25 Valley Park turnovers in a convincing 64-53 win in the first round of the Valley Park Invitational Tournament. “It was a little bit sloppy,” Brentwood coach Brad Kern said. “They had quite a bit of size on us, and we had …

Eagles are primed to improve on last year’s 9-14 season. The season opener is set for Tuesday at home against Construction Careers Academy.
Coming off a 9-14 season last year, and with the two best players from that team now playing in college, some might think the Brentwood High School boys basketball team is in for a rebuilding year this season. Don’t count head coach Brad Kern among those that think that though. Kern said he is very excited about the Eagles prospects for the coming season. “We go about nine deep,” Kern said. “I think we’re deeper than we were last year. We can play more up-tempo than we did in the past, and I think we’ll be more exciting.” Leading the Eagles on the court this year will be its three senior captains Danny Lynch, Diontez Edwards and Jesse Sneed. All three are expected to start, while Kern also expects to get big contributions from juniors Josh…
