Steve Strauss tied school records with six three-point baskets and 38 points as host Northeast defeated Southern of Anne Arundel, 86-52, in a battle of co-No. 16s in an Anne Arundel County 2A-3A League game last night.
The 6-foot-3 senior's hot hand helped the Eagles run off 13 unanswered points at the end of the first half as they turned a 17-16 lead into a 38-26 lead at halftime.
"We had the green light to shoot [three-pointers], and in the second half it just felt good," said Strauss, who has hit on 22 of 46 (48 percent), including six of 12 last night from three-point range. "[Southern] wouldn't get tight on me, so after the first one I kept on shooting."
