Andrew Holland was hot from the perimeter while Alex Denny guarded the inside at both ends as host Broadneck eliminated Arundel, 58-44, in a Class 4A East region boys basketball quarterfinal in Cape St. Claire last night.

Holland, a four-year starting guard for the Bruins (14-8), launched five threes, was 9-for-10 at the free-throw line in the last 2:20 of the game and finished with a game-high 31 points.

"My teammates were setting screens for me and the big man [Denny] kept setting picks for me at the top of the key, " said Holland, who was 5-for-10 in three-point attempts.

Denny, a 6-foot-4 senior, con- trolled the boards with 10 rebounds, five at each end, and six blocked shots to go with six points.

"I really don't have the ath- leticism to get good blocks and I just try to tip it away and be a presence down there," said Denny. "It's just good on the ball defense forcing them to take bad shots and it's a credit to my teammates."

The Bruins will play a 4A East region semifinal tomorrow at Thomas Stone.
