This time, Walbrook didn't leave any doubts.

The No. 3 Warriors defeated host and No. 6 Southwestern, 79-69, in a battle for first in a Maryland Scholastic Gamper Conference 3A Division game before a capacity crowd.

Sophomore guard Travone Broadway led the Warriors (10-1, 6-0) with 17 points. Andre Rafus added 15 and Antwan Wingo had 11 for Walbrook, which had defeated No. 7 Southern of Baltimore, 66-58, Tuesday.

"We did what we had to do," said Walbrook coach Gus Herrington. "We knew they were going to put some pressure, and we just handled it."

The last time Walbrook and Southwestern played was last season at Southwestern in a controversial game.

The Warriors won, 66-65, on a foul shot by Eric Carroll with no time remaining. Carroll had grabbed a rebound off a miss and was fouled putting it back in. It had appeared that the shot came after the buzzer, but the official said it was good.

There was no questionable ending yesterday, as the Warriors were able to break the Sabers' half-court defense in the second half and built a 64-45 lead with 6:17 remaining.

The Sabers made things interesting, closing the margin to 68-60 with 2:17 left. But Walbrook hit seven free throws down the stretch.

"A lot of people doubted us," said Broadway, who added six rebounds and two assists. "We have to prove ourselves in every game from here on out."

Broadway gave Walbrook some momentum at the end of the first half, scoring eight during an 11-3 run, turning what was a 28-24 deficit into a 35-32 halftime edge.

Herrington went with a different lineup to start the second half --Marvin Matthews, Troy Parker, Antwon Jenifer, Clifton Young and Donnie Joy, with the starters rotating in.

Walbrook outscored Southwestern 25-11 in the third quarter, including the final eight points, for a 60-43 margin.

"We had turnovers [24] at the wrong time," said Southwestern coach Terry Leverette.
