Gilman shoots poorly in loss to Episcopal Academy

Gilman started slowly and shot only 36 percent from the field Sunday in a 65-56 loss to Episcopal Academy in the Mercer Tournament at the Hill School in Pottstown, Pa. The Greyhounds scored just six points in the first quarter and trailed 32-20 at the half. Senior Ben Grace led Gilman with 31 points on 10-for-16 shooting from the field, including 5-for-9 from outside. Grace also had four rebounds and three steals but committed six of his team's 15 turnovers. Sophomore transfer Kai Locksley made only two of 11 field-goal attempts and finished with nine points. The Greyhounds struggled from the free-throw line, shooting 17-for-26 (65percent).

Men's college basketball: Sean Farr (Dunbar) scored a season- and game-high 25 points to lead host Baltimore City Community College (11-3) to an 82-76 win over Roxbury Community College (10-1) in the Ben Williams Classic. Farr added five rebounds and three assists. Kendal Williams was a perfect 7-of-7 from the field for the Panthers, finishing with 17 points, four assists and three rebounds. Justin Kuntz (Glen Burnie) added 12 points. On Saturday night, BCCC escaped with a 79-75 win over visiting Globe Institute of Technology (7-3). Globe went on a 15-5 run to the game at 70 with 2:40 left, but the Panthers outscored the Knights 9-5 the rest of the way. Williams had 19 points, four assists, two boards and two steals. Kuntz had 15 points and 19 rebounds to go along with three steals and two assists. Farr finished with 12 points and four rebounds. Thomas Moore and Timothy Jackson each had 15 points for Globe. Moore also had a game-high six assists and added four rebounds, while Jackson had three steals, two rebounds and two blocks.

College wrestling: Carl Buchholz won a dramatic decision in overtime to propel No. 18 Maryland (6-3) to a come-from-behind 18-17 victory over No. 14 Nebraska in the second match of the Grapple at the Garden at New York's Madison Square Garden. With the Terps trailing by two points and needing a win, Buchholz (285 pounds) recovered after giving up a first-period reversal to the Cornhuskers' Donny Longendyke to send the match into sudden victory. After shots by both wrestlers failed to yield any points in the period, Buchholz rode Longendyke for the entire 30 seconds in the first half of the tiebreaker. Holding the upper hand, Buchholz freed himself midway through the second half of the first tiebreaker and held off Longendyke for the win and an 18-17 Terrapin victory. After the Cornhuskers earned a major decision at 165 and a fall at 174, the Terps trailed 17-9 and needed to win the final three matches. Jimmy Sheptock started the comeback with a 3-2 sudden victory over sixth-ranked Josh Ihnen.
