Boys basketball: Strong finish lands Nico Brusa all-league honors
Nico Brusa of the Tokay Tigers is fouled as he shoots during the second period of a varsity boys basketball game against the Bear Creek Bruins at Tokay High School in Lodi on Friday, Jan. 3, 2014. Brusa was named to the all-league second team after leading the Tigers to a playoff berth. The junior averaged 16.5 points in his final four games of the season.

When Nico Brusa’s team needed him this year, the junior forward stepped up.
Last week, Tri-City Athletic League coaches took notice and awarded him all-league second team honors. Brusa’s late-season spark got the Tokay Tigers varsity boys basketball to its first playoff berth since 2006. He’s joined by teammate Kashif Afzal, a junior, on the all-defensive team and point guard Kyle Rivers as honorable mention.
