GREAT BARRINGTON— This season, the Monument Mountain boys’ basketball team was forced to make some changes. With just four returners from last year’s group that made the postseason, not much was known outside the program about what the Spartans would look like in 2019-20.

One thing was for sure, though, and that was that junior Dion Brown would have his fingerprints all over the action.

Monday night was no exception, as Brown put up a staggering 28 points, 12 assists and 16 rebounds in just three quarters of action in a 71-51 victory for Monument over the Lee Wildcats in the first matchup of the year between the teams.

At times this season, Brown has deferred to his teammates to get them involved with the game before he begins to take it over. But against Lee, it was clear he wanted to get his scoring done early and often.

In the opening minutes, Brown took off down the lane and elevated high above the gym, throwing down a monstrous dunk that ended up with him being assessed a technical foul, giving Lee its first points of the game.
