Brea scored 27 points Tuesday in an 83-68 victory against Stepinac, a team that includes North Carolina recruit R.J. Davis. Brea missed five games with a strained calf in December. His team has won five of its last six games and is 12-10 with two games to play in the regular season.

Blakney: The 6-6 guard from Baltimore graduated from St. Maria Goretti High School in Hagerstown, Md., and now is spending a post-graduate year at Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, Conn.
