March 19, 2011|By From Sun Staff Reports

Very little went right for No. 1 John Carroll boys basketball team in the second round of the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament at Frostburg State on Friday.

Point guard Malcolm McMillan got in early foul trouble and sat out most of the second quarter, and DeMatha made three times as many free throws as the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and Baltimore Catholic League champion Patriots (33-3) lost, 38-32.

The Stags (28-7), the Washington Catholic Athletic Association and Washington city champions, used long offensive possessions and a 2-3 zone to stifle John Carroll's offense, which scored half as many points as compared to the first round.
