Basketball roundup

January 29, 2000|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

It wasn't supposed to that kind of a game. But the No. 2-ranked Annapolis boys basketball team played about as well as possible at home, and No. 14 Meade walked out trying to forget the 83-38 whipping it took last night.

The host Panthers' all-county trio of Thomas Hawkins, Marcus Johnson and Marcus Neal combined for 45 points.

Annapolis (13-0) shot 52 percent (33-for-64) from the floor, made 11 of 12 free throws and played superb defense.

Hawkins scored a game-high 23 points, and Marcus Johnson and Neal had 11 points each.

On the other side, the Mustangs lost their leading scorer, Doug Underwood, who came in averaging 21.8 points, to an ankle injury late in the first period.

Underwood, who had four points, had his left ankle taped and didn't return. His loss seemed to take the life out of the Mustangs, who shot 25 percent (13-for-51) for the game including 12 percent (3-for-25) in the second half, scoring only on a three-pointer by Andre Everett in the final period.

Matt Larimore led Meade with nine points.

"We didn't execute, and that's all I want to say about the way we played," said Meade coach Butch Young.

"The Annapolis trainer told us that [Underwood] might have torn ligaments and miss a week or so, but he has to be X-rayed."

"Meade's a good team and you have to execute against them which is what we did," said Annapolis coach John Brady, whose team started the second half with a 45-24 lead and went on a 10-1 run, with Joe Feldmann scoring eight of the points.

The victory gives the Panthers sole possession of first place in the Anne Arundel County League at 7-0, with Meade (9-4) slipping to 6-1.

No. 1 Towson Catholic 60, St. Maria Goretti 48: All-Metro player Keith Jenifer scored 29 and added with six assists, four rebounds and two steals, and 6-foot-5 sophomore Carmello Anthony scored 12 and had seven rebounds in the Catholic League game as the top-ranked Owls (18-4, 6-0) won their 16th straight.

The Owls enter a difficult stretch of games against Loyola, McDonogh and Calvert Hall, capped by consecutive games against Spalding -- an earlier 10-point loser to Goretti.

"They [Towson Catholic] shot 62 percent from the floor, and Keith Jenifer was 12-for-16," said Goretti coach Cokey Robertson. "We've played DeMatha, St. Raymond's, St. John Neumann -- all good teams -- and they're every bit as good as them, if not better, particularly the way Jenifer's playing."

No. 10 Calvert Hall 63, Cardinal Gibbons 56: Jared Woodley scored 21 points to power the Cardinals (11-8) past the visiting Crusaders. Pierre Jones added 13 for Calvert Hall.

No. 12 Mount St. Joseph 56, Loyola 40: Kevin Mickens and J. J. Outlaw combined for 11 of the Gaels' 18 points in the decisive third quarter, as Mount St. Joseph (15-5, 4-3) pulled away for a Catholic League victory over the host Dons (6-13, 0-6). Outlaw had a game-high 21 points and Mickens contributed 18.

Marcus Frisby led Loyola with 12 points.

No. 13 Randallstown 68, Western Tech 37: The host Rams (14-1) used a 23-9 third-quarter run on the way to victory over the Wolverines. Thirteen players scored for Randallstown, led by Aaron Hutchinson's 12 points.

Hutchinson had six points in the third period, which ended with the Rams ahead 54-24.

No. 17 North County 76, Glen Burnie 45: Mark Jennings and Jerome Goodman each scored 17 points for the host Knights (8-4).

No. 19 Milford Mill 97, Loch Raven 53: Tariq Agyemann scored 16 points to power the host Millers (12-4). Milford Mill pulled away with a 31-16 run in the third quarter.

Mark MacCumbee led Loch Raven with 14 points.
