Cabrice Brown scored 19 for Detroit Denby as it defeated Detroit CMA, 37-28, in girls basketball on Thursday.

Brown, a center/forward, added 10 rebounds, cleaning up on the boards in a game that was tied at 17 late in the first half.

“We struggled making good passes early,” Denby coach Sayligmon Staten Jr. said.

“But we did well at the free throw line, where we really won the game.”

Denby (4-1) went 11-for-15 at the foul line.

Staten adjusted Denby’s defense to a 1-3-1 zone for the second half, which proved too much for CMA (2-3, 1-1 PSL West Division 2) to handle.

Kendal Taylor had 10 points to go along with five assists, leading Denby’s backcourt and providing her team opportunites to stretch its lead in the second half.

“Kendal got two steals near the end, leading to four points on fast breaks in the second half. She really broke it open,” Staten said.

Partially due to postponed games from Sunday’s snowstorm, CMA is in the midst of a four games in six days, with three on the road.

It beat Detroit Central on Wednesday and plays Southfield Bradford Academy on Friday and at Detroit Cody on Monday.

Denby gets Delta Academy at 4 p.m. on Monday.
