Upstaging some of the area's top teams is becoming a habit for the Cardinal Gibbons boys basketball team.

For the second time in less than a week, the Crusaders (13-8) upset a top-15 opponent by nipping No. 15-ranked McDonogh, 66-64, at home last night.

The upset came about 48 hours after Cardinal Gibbons had upended sixth-ranked St. Frances on Wednesday.

Junior Luke McCrone sparked the Crusaders with 18 points. Cardinal Gibbons also received significant contributions from senior Rocky Brown (16 points) and freshman Lance Fuller (14).

After numerous ties, the Crusaders took control in the fourth quarter and held off the Eagles.

Calvert Hall (13-3, 4-1) overcame a two-point deficit at halftime to win its fourth straight.

Severna Park 76, No. 13 Meade 65: Trevor Quinn's move from forward to point guard paid off handsomely as the 6-foot-6 player recorded a triple double (27 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds) to power the Falcons (8-6) to the shocker at home.
