Severn fights off fatigue, Spalding for 7th win in row Boys basketball

December 17, 1992|By Roch Eric Kubatko | Roch Eric Kubatko,Staff Writer

Five games in six days.

Some teams would drop from exhaustion, but not Severn, which is rising in the Maryland Scholastic Association B Division standings.

"The kids are doing a great job," said Admirals coach Jim Doyle, after his 15th-ranked team defeated visiting Archbishop Spalding, 66-42, yesterday.

The Admirals are 8-1 overall, 3-0 in the division, and Boys basketball

winners of seven straight games. Spalding is 2-3 and 2-1.

Senior forward Brad Fowler scored 19 points for Severn, which plays at Mount Hebron tomorrow night and at home against Boys' Latin on Saturday afternoon.

That's preciously how the Admirals, who regard stamina as highly as scoring, want it.

For now, at least.

"I probably couldn't take three or four weeks of it," said Fowler, who also grabbed eight rebounds. "For a little while it's not bad."

Severn looked like a tired team at the beginning yesterday. Failing to box out and slow to get back on defense, the Admirals fell behind, 6-0, before Doyle called a timeout with 6:36 left in the first quarter.

Spalding led by as many as eight points, 14-6, after Rich Reilly scored inside with 3:20 remaining. Severn's Jamand Mack banked in a shot to begin a 10-0 run that carried into the second quarter, and concluded with a Fowler three-pointer from the right corner.

Spalding's Brian Mohr hit from the outside to tie the score at 16, but Chris Pitkin answered with a jumper and two free throws, and Severn never trailed again.
