Former CPA standout Braxton Key wins title with Virginia

Former Christ Presbyterian Academy basketball standout Braxton Key helped spark the ignition on a Virginia basketball championship.

Key played the role of sixth man in Monday night’s 85-77 Cavaliers victory in the NCAA Men’s National Championship.

He put in 29 minutes and grabbed a team-leading 10 boards. He also pitched in with six points.

The former CPA Lion had the key block that helped send the game to overtime and had a handful of game-altering dunks.

Key played at CPA for his freshman, sophomore and junior years where he won two Mr. Basketball awards (2014, 2015) before transferring to Oak Hill Academy in Virginia to conclude his high school career.

He spent 2016-18 at Alabama before transferring to Virginia for the 2018-19 season.

He had 10 minutes of game time in Saturday’s Cavs win over Auburn, with two points and two rebounds to count for.
