The Knudsen Homes men's over-30 basketball team came up just short in its recent bid to win the M.R.P.A. "Limited" State Tournament in Ocean City.

Knudsen, led by former UMBC standout and second all-time leading scorer Rick Moreland, went 5-1 in the 16-team double-elimination tournament before losing to Green Castle Sports, 76-65, in the April 4 championship game.

Moreland led the way in the final with 18 points, former James Madison player Jeff Cross scored 17 and former Indiana University of Pennsylvania player Jim Stromberg added 13.

The team also featured former Jacksonville State player Anthony Robbins and former Salisbury State players Pat Wynn and Brett Carter.

Lou Thomas led Green Castle with a game-high 21 points and Kenny Luck added 17.

The game was close for most of the way, and was tied 31-31 at the half before Green Castle pulled away late.

Knudsen began the tournament with a win over American Capital before losing its second game to Kerley Signs to move into the loser's bracket.

There, the team went on a roll, beating the Angle Inn, Genie's Lithographs, Krazy Otto's, the Baltimore Stars and R & R Medical to advance to the final.

Other players on the team were Fred Teodosio, Ray Treacy and

Dan Stewart.
