This season, Lake Clifton doesn't have a big frontline like previous Lakers teams, so it uses an aggressive defense and a perimeter shooting game to compensate.
Yesterday, the third-ranked Lakers defeated host Poly (6-4, 2-3), 75-61, in a Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference game.
Lake Clifton (6-1, 2-0) was not among the preseason favorites in the A Conference, but it is tied for first with Cardinal Gibbons.
"We're working hard right now," said Lake Clifton coach Charlie Moore. "I really don't know how good we're going to be. It's too early to say if this is a big win, but it's not too late to say that it isn't, so I'll leave it at that."
