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.

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

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…
