Elliott's 3 sends John Carroll boys to win

Rodney Elliott sank a 3-pointer from the right corner to lift No. 5 John Carroll over visiting Glenelg Country School, 55-54, in a tightly contested Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference boys basketball game Sunday. After the first three quarters ended in a tie, the Patriots trailed 54-52 with 24 seconds left when a missed layup turned into a fast break for John Carroll and a catch-and-shoot by Elliott to win the game. John Carroll opened with a 6-0 run but played catch-up for most of the game. Glenelg Country (9-8, 4-6) took an 11-8 lead with 2:26 left before the Patriots (17-5, 6-3) went on a 7-4 run for a tie at 15. In the second quarter, Glenelg Country went on a 5-0 run; Cesar Jove-Vives (11 points) made two free throws and a 3-pointer, after a technical foul was called on the John Carroll bench, for a 29-26 Dragons lead with 3:22 left in the half. Glenelg Country led 30-27 with a 1:22 left before John Carroll battled back. Justin Jenifer (17 points) had five points in the span, and Elliott made a layup in the closing seconds to tie the game at 33. Each team scored nine points in a defense-heavy third quarter, which ended with the teams even at 42. After four scoreless minutes to open the fourth quarter, Glenelg Country School built and maintained a lead of one to two points.
