Calvert Hall boys run past Loyola, 55-38

Sean Mayberry (10 points) sparked a 20-5 run in the second quarter as the host Calvert Hall boys basketball team beat Loyola, 55-38, on Sunday. The Dons (9-12, 2-6 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) played a very composed, confident first quarter. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Mitch Cross and Dan Vigus led to a 16-10 Loyola lead. In the second quarter, the Cardinals (9-12, 4-6) used a full-court defense to hold Loyola scoreless until a layup by Jordan Floyd with 1:42 left in the half. The Cardinals took control when Mayberry hit a 3-pointer and two free throws for a 17-16 lead with 5:18 left. They never trailed again and led 30-21 at halftime. After a third quarter in which Loyola outscored Calvert Hall 8-7, the Cardinals doubled up on the Dons 18-9 in the fourth quarter. Calvert Hall's Denzel Richardson finished with a game-high 16 points, and Vigus had 11 for Loyola. Free-throw shooting continued to trouble Loyola, which went 3-for-10 in the first half and 4-for-17 in the game. Conor McVan put an exclamation mark on the win, dunking with 1:39 to go for the final Calvert Hall basket.
