High school Legends team remains undefeated
Alicia Browder leads Neighborhood House Charter High School girls basketball team
As we journey deeper into this basketball season, it’s time to acknowledge one of the few remaining unbeaten teams in the women’s high school ranks, and one of its major stars. The Neighborhood House Charter High School team from Dorchester is the undefeated squad, and its star is Alicia Browder, one of the top female players in Massachusetts high school basketball. Browder is sporting a 19.2 scoring average, with over six rebounds and two-plus blocked shots a game for the 15-0 Lady Legends. The 5-foot-9 senior center forward has drawn the attention of college coaches. And she’s not the only star on this Legends team. Karin Richardson, a 5-foot-3 sophomore point guard, features a 17.8-point scoring average and seven assists a game. She has one the best “handles” seen in a freshman or sophomore in some time.A floor leader blessed with exceptional scoring ability, Richardson has been a starter since eighth grade.
This team is built on effort, drive and heart. Everyone affiliated with this school knows of the long road it took to get us where we are today. We are determined to keep moving forward.”
