Top-ranked Southern of Baltimore will be one of eight boys basketball teams that will play in the fifth annual DeMatha Invitational on Jan. 26 at MCI Center in Washington.

The Bulldogs (7-2), ranked 14th nationally by USA Today, is scheduled to face Paul VI of Fairfax, Va., at 6 p.m. in the third game of the five-game event. Paul VI is led by 6-foot-10 Stanford-bound center Robert Little and 5-10 guard Dennis Bowden, who helped his Amateur Athletic Union team to a semifinal berth at the Big Time Tournament.

The invitational was created by DeMatha coach Morgan Wootten after he received a life-saving liver transplant in 1996. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness for organ donation. Net proceeds will benefit the National Kidney Foundation of the National Capital Area Inc.
