Poly pulls out a tight one, with sophomore Justin Lewis having a monster game, scoring 36 points in a 65-61 win, handing the Poets their first loss of the season. The Engineers used a 23-9 run between the 4 minute mark of the 3rd to the 4 minute mark of the fourth to turn a 6 point deficit into a 8 point lead, a lead the Poets weren't able to overcome. 

Couple this outcome with City’s upset of Lake Clifton and I believe we get a Dunbar/Poly rematch for the City Championship.....barring any other upsets.

We do. I'll watch that again. I believe those are the two best publics in the state. The top city league teams should play each other twice, anyway. They'd still have plenty of space to schedule a nice OOC lineup, like Poly does. 8 team league equals 14 league games, 7 team league gives you 12, leaving 8-10 outside games, respectively. Lewis went off, tonight!

Next week, BalCo featues the goodies - Milford Mill @ Perry Hall, Monday, then Woodlawn @ Dulaney and Perry Hall @ Dundalk, both Wednesday. Thursday, New Town @ Milford Mill.

Tuesday, the top two in HoCo face off, with River Hill traveling to Kilimanjaro to take on Oakland Mills.

A day after coming off a big win at Dunbar, Poly loses at home to Wilson DC, 56-53. The 24 win Tigers, who went undefeated in the DCIAA, and has wins over Rock Creek Christian and Goretti, did lose to Bowie, 85-82, two weeks ago.

I'm hearing 32 points, 23 rebounds, and 7 blocks tonight for Sticks.

I'm also hearing St Frances lost to Pallotti tonight.

I’m guessing barring something unforeseen...Potomac will host Poly in the 3A South Regional Final

Unfortunately, they are both in the same section. Barring upsets, they'd meet in the sectional final, regional semifinal game - WED/THU.

On senior night on Kilimanjaro, Oakland Mills came back from 14 down to take out first place River Hill, 70-65, despite their two leading scorers combining for just 15 points, 10 in the first 30 minutes, before hitting 5 free throws, collectively, to seal it in the final minute plus. Mister Hairston led the Scorpions with 17 points. River Hill scored 26 first quarter points, 39 over the last 3.

After beating Patterson too City is the Beast of the East this year. I think this new young coach is gonna put City on the map again sooner rather than later.

Impressive run, indeed. The Black Knights are just 1 of 10 MPSSAA teams with 2 top 15 wins. Defense looks to be the theme. They allowed Patterson just 40 points, Lake, 53, and Dunbar, 47. The Black Knights have allowed 60 points just 4 times this season, and more than 62, just once, in the opener.

The tough thing is that 3A South. Geez! 9 teams I have ranked among the top 60 (56, really). Poly and Potomac headlining, Oxon Hill, who like City College, has taken some losses, but proven they can beat the best when they are at their best, as they are the only MPSSAA school to beat 1A defending champ Fairmont Heights this season. Add in Southwestern and Digital. Southewestern has beaten City and Dundalk, while Digital has beaten Patterson and the aforementioned Southwestern. Also, 3 of the 5 best SMAC teams - 3 loss Great Mills, 5 loss St Charles, and Huntingtown, who has beaten the top ranked SMAC team, Westlake.

Section I, in partucular. 6 top 50 teams. Looks like the first round (next Fri/Sat) will have a pair of games with some kind of combination of City, Oxon Hill, Southwestern, and Digital playing each other. Next up for the winners would be either Poly or Potomac. Thats assuming Poly has clinched a bye. Potomac has. Then, after beating say, Oxon Hill, then beating Poly, you'd likely have to beat Potomac just to get to the regional final.

I mentioned the 3 decent SMAC teams, but there is a good possibilty that the regional final may be the easiest test of the 3A South regional for one of the four first round players in Section I, should they be that fortunate. Tough crowd.

Oakland Mills claims a share of the HoCo title, after coming back to beat Marriotts Ridge, and Glenelg coming back from 13 down in the second half on the road to hand River Hill its second consecutive loss, after the Hawks lost to the Scorpions on Tuesday.

Tough news for the Blue Devils of Springbrook, as they lose Quinnipiac commit Matt Balanc to a broken tibia in the regular season finale vs Blake. The 4A North Section II is now Paint Branch's to lose. In the two meetings between the top two teams in the MoCo 4A East, they both won on each other's floors. In Section I of the 4A North, Perry Hall will likely face Dulaney in the sectional final, in a rematch of their 80-77 tilt early in the season, won by the Gators. That's provided Mervo doesn't erase the chalk.
