BIRMINGHAM, AL - Mountain Brook will take on Carver-Montgomery Wednesday in the Class 6A semifinals.

The Spartans are two wins away from repeating as Class 6A state champions.  Head coach Bucky McMillan hopes to use that experience as an edge.

"You can say it's an advantage, but three out of four teams in the 6A Final Four were all here last year," McMillan said.  "And last year when we won it all, we hadn't been there before."

Coming into the season, you could have said this would be a re-building year.

Mountain Brook lost nine players - including it's top two scorers and top three rebounders.

Despite the departures, senior guard Patrick Keim says this team is very similar to last year's team.

"We have a lot of defensive pieces," Keim said.  "A lot of guys that play nitty-gritty defense, you have a lot of skill players, a lot of people that can shoot the three."

They'll need those three's to fall on Wednesday when they play a Carver-Montgomery team that feature four division-one players.
