MARLTON - Rancocas Valley boys basketball coach Jay Flanagan described senior Antonio Brito as a quiet kid.

Brito started his junior year on JV and was elevated to varsity as the season progressed. His toughness left the coaching staff with no choice but to promote him.

Less than a year later, Brito has emerged as the Red Devils' starting point guard and undisputed leader on the floor.

The senior scored a game-high 15 points and finished a perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line in Rancocas Valley's 49-37 triumph over Cherokee in an Olympic Conference American Division matchup on Thursday night. The Red Devils improved their record to 6-3.

Brito showcased his ability to finish with his left hand through contact at the rim. He consistently worked his way into the lane and maneuvered effectively off his pivot foot. The senior's vision in transition allowed him to facilitate and create scoring opportunities for himself.

"He's probably the toughest player we have in our program," Flanagan said. "He's a true point guard. He fights on every possession. Great defender. He's really quiet, but the other guys feed off his energy and I'm really proud of him. I think he's doing a terrific job."
