COLLEGE PARK - Eleanor Roosevelt of Prince George's County, which entered the Class 4A boys basketball state tournament as No. 10 regional seed, upset Thomas Johnson of Frederick, 50-45, in the championship game at Cole Field House last night.

Victor Akinyanju, Edward Young and Jeremy Bruce each scored 14 points for the Raiders (16-12), who routed Mervo, 74-41, in Thursday's semifinal round.

Jermaine Thomas had nine points for Thomas Johnson (25-2), which had its 19-game winning streak snapped.

Marshall Jackson stole a pass and scored with seven seconds left to secure the win for the Raiders.
