Crossland of Prince George's County defeated No. 2-ranked Annapolis, 75-71, in the Class 3A East Region championship game at Crossland last night.

The Panthers (24-2), defending regional champs, trailed the entire game, but pulled within two points at 72-70 with a minute left.

But the area's leading scorer, Marcus Neal, averaging 30.4 points a game, fouled out ending the threat. Neal was held to 15 points.

FOR THE RECORD - In yesterday's Sports section, the coach of City College's boys baskeball team was misidentified. He is Derek Lipsky. The Sun regrets the errors.

Markus Haskins and Jamaile Robinson each led the Cavaliers (20-6) with 18.

No. 1 Dunbar 81, City 55: Five players scored in double figures pacing the Poets (25-1) to a lopsided victory in the region championship game at City.

James Taylor scored 17 points and Victor Molen and Ken Minor each scored 14 for Dunbar.

City tried to slow the pace early in the game and led 21-18 in the second quarter, before the visiting Poets asserted themselves.

"We played much better as a team in the second half and were able to work it inside," Dunbar coach Eric Lee said.

Kyle Duffie led City (9-12) with 14 points. James Williams and Hakim Hibbert each scored 12.

"Minor was really tough at point guard for them and pretty much beat us with his penetration," said City coach Daryl Wade, who was ejected with his second technical foul in the third quarter.

Dunbar will play Fairmont Heights in the state semifinals at 7 p.m. Friday at College Park.
