Deshawn Brown scored 23 points, to lead four players in double figures as host Meade defeated Chesapeake-AA, 73-61, yesterday to give Meade coach Butch Young his 400th career victory.

Young, who is in his 20th season at Meade now has a career record of 400-277. He also spent 10 years as coach at Severna Park.

"Right now, it's just another ball game, as long as I'm still coaching. A couple of kids put a little more pressure on themselves than they should have, but if I ever do get old, sitting in a chair, I'll think back on it," said Young, who was presented with a plaque after the game.

Young joins 11 other state coaches who have won 400 games. Seven are still active -- Morgan Wootten (DeMatha, 1,119-168), Cokie Robertson (Goretti, 561-318), Jerry Savage (Loyola, 536-332), Tom Albright (Southern-AA, 462-270), Hugh Gelston (Boys' Latin, 461-281), Tom Dickman (Thomas Johnson, 449-109) and John Brady (Annapolis, 411-79).
