Daevon Haskins scored 32 points to lead No. 9 Walbrook to a 71-67 victory over Northwestern in a Class 4A North region boys basketball semifinal last night.

The host Warriors trailed most of the game and by as many as 10 points, but Haskins sparked a late comeback over the upstart Wildcats (13-12).

Haskins, a 6-foot-3, second-team All-Metro guard, hit back-to-back three pointers in the final 30 seconds to give the Warriors the edge. He scored 20 in the second half.

Dontae Draper scored 17 and had 11 assists for the Warriors, and teammate Tynell Dunkley had 17 points and 12 rebounds.

The Wildcats, coming off Monday's 70-50 rout of sixth-ranked, Baltimore County champion Dulaney (21-3), did not trail until there was 1:17 left in the game.

"I told you before the game that I was kind of concerned about Northwestern," said Walbrook coach Kelvin Bridgers, whose team is 20-5. "It was a tough game, and they came to play."

Tomorrow, the Warriors will face No. 4 Lake Clifton (19-4), an 82-79 winner over No. 7 Southern in last night's other 4A North semifinal.
