Community School of Davidson coach Tony Brown passes away unexpectedly

Community School of Davidson boys’ basketball coach Tony Brown passed away Monday morning at his home.

Brown also was a coach with the Charlotte Storm AAU program, which posted a brief memorial on its website.

“Tony was a great friend and supporter of so many people,” the memorial stated in part. “Words cannot express our loss. We hope to continue his work and passion for people. Our prayers are with his family, dear wife Melody and sons Richard and Robert.”

Brown’s team at Community School of Davidson is scheduled to play at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday at Bessemer City.

Tuesday’s Featured Games

West Charlotte (12-5, 6-2 MECKA 8 4A) at North Mecklenburg (15-2, 6-2), 7:30 p.m.: Hough (13-3, 7-0) owns wins against both of these teams, and the loser will have a hard time catching the Huskies for a league title. West Charlotte beat North Meck easily at home this season. This is one of the county’s top rivalries and is the game of the week.

Weddington (18-1, 5-0 Southern Carolina 3A) at Sun Valley (9-9, 3-2), 7:30 p.m.: Weddington struggled a little in a close win Friday against Cuthbertson and will travel to face a hot Sun Valley team. Sun Valley has won three in a row and four of five games after Friday’s 77-63 win against then second-place Anson Senior. Malcolm Cumberbatch led Sun Valley with 21 points Friday.
