Towson Catholic, playing without its starting point guard for the second straight game, showed its potential last night, beating Bullis Prep of Montgomery County, 68-64 in overtime, to take both of its games at the Towson Catholic Tip-Off Classic at Goucher College.

For No. 19 Towson Catholic, senior center Damian Hocker scored a game-high 28 points and pulled down 16 rebounds and Deone Carter added 15, six coming in the overtime period.

The Owls played the two-day mixer without sophomore point guard Lafonte Johnson, who is out indefinitely because of "a school-related matter" said Towson Catholic coach Mike Daniel.

"With Lafonte, we're in real good shape," said Daniel.

Calvert Hall also finished a successful tournament, completing a 3-0 opening week with a 53-38 victory over Central (0-2) of Prince George's County.

Senior shooting guard Juan Dixon scored a game-high 21 points and Aaron Herbert added 12 to lead Calvert Hall to its victory over Central.

Terrence Watford had a team-high 100 for Central, ranked No. 9 in the Washington area.
