Landy Thompson

Archbishop Spalding, basketball

The 6-foot-1 guard capped his senior season with a solid individual performance last weekend at the 42nd Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament.

Thompson had 20 points, nine rebounds and three assists in a 52-49 victory over Judge Memorial (Utah). Although the Cavaliers dropped a 75-70 decision to Roanoke Catholic, Thompson collected 14 points, eight rebounds and five assists, and limited Virginia-bound J.R. Reynolds, who was averaging 27 points, to two field goals and 14 points.

Thompson powered Spalding to Baltimore Catholic League regular-season and tournament crowns and was named the Most Valuable Player of the BCL tournament.


Danie Mosca

Towson, basketball

The 5-foot-9 guard earned Most Valuable Player honors for the Baltimore County Senior All-Stars after leading them to a 70-66 victory over their Baltimore City counterparts on Friday night.

Mosca scored a game-high 18 points, including a three-pointer with 2:50 remaining to give the county the lead for good at 64-63. She also contributed a game-high 11 rebounds as well as three assists. This marked the first win for the county girls in the three-year history of the series.

A four-year varsity player for the Generals (16-7), Mosca averaged 17.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists this season. She signed early to play for Division I Niagara University.
