From Staff ReportsSeptember 13, 2012 

The star senior twins from Millbrook girls’ basketball team may have finally wrapped up their recruiting process for good.

Briana and Bria Day, who have led the Wildcats to back-to-back 4A state championship game appearances including capturing the 2012 title, committed to Syracuse over the weekend.

The Days had committed to UNC-Chapel Hill as sophomores, then de-committed as juniors only to commit again to the Tar Heels last season, which was followed by another de-commitment this summer.

Briana averaged 10.4 points per game for the 31-2 Wildcats, while Bria missed most of the regular season with a shoulder injury.

ESPN.com's HoopGurlz ranks Briana as the 57th-best senior in the country.

A third Millbrook player, senior Courtney Best, committed to Campbell this week, bringing the number of Wildcats players from last year who have signed or committed to playing Division I basketball to four – two starters and two reserves.

Graham commits to Appalachian State

Broughton senior basketball player Devonte Graham made his verbal commitment to Appalachian State and coach Jason Capel. Graham averaged 14.2 points per game for the 21-7 Capitals.

ESPN ranks Graham as the 10th-best player in the state.

Roxboro Person star basketball player Tyrone Outlaw Jr. committed to UNC-Greensboro and coach Wes Miller over the weekend. Outlaw averaged 22 points, and 14 rebounds per game and was named PAC-6 Conference player of the year as a junior for the 20-5 Rockets.

ESPN ranks Outlaw Jr. as the 14th-best senior in the state.
