Malik James watched from the bench at what could have been his last game in a Brighton High jersey after picking up his fourth foul at the end of the third quarter of Tuesday night’s Division 2 boys’ basketball Eastern Mass. final at TD Garden.
“I’m definitely not coming back to Brighton next year,’’ said James, who is planning on going to prep school next year. “There are a few options, I have an interview coming up but my coach, he has all that information. It’s been planned. That’s why I’m trying to carry them so far, getting them this ring so I can leave on a good note.”
