NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – The Brooks School is known much more for academics than athletics. Academically, it’s in a class with few peers among the NEPSAC schools, and it has a campus that’s right up there with the best of them in the very nice suburbs well north of Boston. The basketball program has had some notable players in recent years, including former Connecticut and Missouri forward Alex Oriakhi, and while they don’t have an individual talent on quite that level in 2013-14, they will be a team to keep an eye on.
Brooks will field a young team this season, but figures to be competitive if their younger and more talented players grow up. They have made the NEPSAC Class B semifinals three years in a row and hope to take at least a step further this time around.
