Eyewitnesses at the MRH-Valley Park game said the referee yelled at Frazier, and Frazier had no reply.
Maplewood Richmond Heights boys basketball coach Corey Frazier didn’t witness one of his team’s big wins of the season because he had been ejected the game before. Per MSHSAA rules, he had to miss the following game. The Blue Devils beat Whitfield 47-41 on Saturday, the game where Caleb Greenwalt hit four 3-pointers. It was in a game the day before, against Valley Park, that Frazier was ejected. Why he was ejected seems to be a mystery. In a St. Louis Post Dispatch article, eyewitnesses at the game are quoted as saying the official who ejected Frazier stood over him and yelled at him. Frazier took to Twitter following the game that night. “Never been so miss treated before in my life. Smh... Devil is busy tonight. Thank God I'm a Christian…

Head basketball coach Corey Frazier played for Saint Louis University coach Charlie Spoonhour, who died on Wednesday.
Corey Frazier, head basketball coach at Maplewood Richmond Heights, fondly remembers playing under the direction of Coach Charlie Spoonhour at Saint Louis University. Frazier played for Spoonhour when the Billikens reached the NCAA Tournament in the 1990s. He spoke to BillikenReport.com about his former coach, who died on Wednesday: "He was real big on being disciplined and making sure we knew what life was about," Frazier said. "Not letting this basketball thing be the only thing. It's also the academic thing, and socially. He even made us take etiquette classes and stuff of that nature. He really cared about us as individuals and us as being productive citizens." See more quotes and the full story on the BillikenReport.com.

With the conference title on the line, senior Tony King's 28 points leads the Blue Devils to a 10-0 league record.
Bayless almost spoiled Maplewood Richmond Heights’ senior night, and much more. MRH’s final regular season home game had the South Central Conference championship on the line. A Blue Devils win meant a fourth straight league title. A lost would mean the Blue Devils would have a co-championship with the Bronchos. Led by senior guard Tony King, MRH finished strong on Tuesday, nipping Bayless 63-58. The win gave the Blue Devils a perfect 10-0 conference record, and 14-10 overall record. Bayless stands at 8-2 in conference, and 17-6 overall, with two regular season games to go before districts. “That’s what seniors are supposed to do,” MRH coach Corey Frazier said of King, who scored a game-high 28 points. “Supposed to get the ball in your …

Maplewood Richmond Heights boys basketball lost to Miller Career Academy, 61-49, in the consolation final of the Webster Classic.
WEBSTER GROVES – On Saturday afternoon, the two teams on the court–Maplewood Richmond Heights and Miller Career Academy–seemed like teams with two different missions. And for the first three-plus quarters, Miller looked like the team with a mission to win. The Miller Career Academy Phoenix scored first, then double- and triple-teamed Kevin Baker, Tony King and every other Blue Devil who got the ball. MRH (2-4) didn't respond until it was too late. Miller harassed MRH for 32 minutes and defeated the Blue Devils, 61-49, in the consolation final of the 11th Annual Webster Classic at Webster Groves High School.
