Digital Harbor adds Walbrook to its resume

December 21, 2007|By Stefen Lovelace | Stefen Lovelace,Sun Reporter

Coming into the season, the Digital Harbor boys basketball team was unranked by The Sun and under the radar. The perceived slight seemed to be just what the Rams needed.

"The kids aren't into the rankings, they just want respect," Rams coach Johnnie Grimes said. "We just felt like we're not appreciated. When they come in, they have a chip on their shoulder and we want to make a name for ourselves."

Digital Harbor proved again that it is a legitimate contender in Baltimore City, going on the road last night to beat No. 10 Walbrook, 66-54.

The win was the third straight over a ranked opponent for the No. 12 Rams (4-0).

Digital Harbor was down 21-15 in the second quarter when Justin Jackson and his brother George took over.

First, George hit a three-pointer. Justin stole the Warriors' inbounds pass, laid the ball up, and got fouled, giving the Rams a three-point play and a tie game. Justin finished with a game-high 28 points.

Digital Harbor led 28-23 at halftime, and its momentum continued into the second half, with the Rams taking a 34-23 lead. Walbrook (3-3) would narrow the gap to three points in the fourth quarter but didn't have enough to overcome the deficit.
