Keys to victory

Milford Mill will be seeking its third straight Baltimore County title against Owings Mills, a school located just eight miles away. The Millers will show the Golden Eagles the kind of intense defensive pressure they haven't seen since dropping consecutive lopsided games to Dunbar and Lake Clifton at last month's Basketball Academy. Colgate signee McCray leads a Milford team holding opponents to an average of just 48 points. Owings Mills features four players averaging double figures in scoring and has won its past seven games by an average of 23 points. With all those lopsided wins, however, the Eagles haven't gone down to the wire since pulling out a nail-biter against Randallstown more than a month ago.
