(Dec. 8, 2017) Worcester Prep senior captain Tucker Brown scored a career-high 26 points on Monday to lead the basketball team to a 68-34 victory over the Gunston Day Herons in Berlin.

“Tucker … is really showing maturity,” Prep Coach Keith Geiger said. “He stays calm, makes good decisions and his shot is really looking good.”

Trailing 5-0 to start the game, Brown netted a three to cut Gunston’s advantage to two points. He sunk another shortly after to give the Mallards an 8-7 lead. Junior Cooper Richins made it 9-7 before Brown hit another three.

At the end of the first quarter, Worcester was ahead 15-10. The Mallards were on top 28-15 at halftime.

Brown tallied 26 points, six assists and three steals. Senior captain Sam Cantello chipped in with 11 points, three assists, three steals and two blocks. Senior captain Brenner Maull added eight points and four rebounds.

“I thought we responded well to the physical play and questionable plays by the other team,” Geiger said. “They were trying to take us out of our game with some talking and pushing, but we held our composure and ended up dominating.”

Worcester will play Salisbury Christian in Salisbury, tonight, at 7 p.m.
