Snapshot: Brighton, O'Brien get their rings

BOSTON -- Early this evening at Roxbury's Reggie Lewis Center, defending MIAA Division 2 state champ Brighton took down Springfield Central, 70-67.

After the Bengals won the state title last season, head coach Hugh Coleman dedicated the season to his lifelong mentor, Jack O'Brien, who first coached him at Charlestown High then brought him on as an assistant for three of his five state championship teams with the Townies. In a touching moment before the game, Coleman gave O'Brien, now the head coach at Central, a championship ring.
