Basketball Game of the Week: No. 8 Poly vs. Woodrow Wilson (D.C.)

December 12, 2013|By Glenn Graham, The Baltimore Sun

What: Spark at the Park

When: Friday, 5:30 p.m.

Where: Forest Park


Poly: John Crosby, Sr., G; Chris Feldman, Sr., G; Marcel Thompson, Jr., F/G

Woodrow Wilson: Larry Holmes, Sr., G; Dimone Long, Sr., G; Miles Gillette, Jr., F


Both teams claimed wins in last weekend's Baltimore vs. Washington, D.C., Challenge at Lake Clifton — Poly dominating Ballou, 69-28, and Wilson getting past No. 13 Dunbar, 67-65. The Engineers lean on standout Crosby, who does everything well with an ability to score the ball and dish to teammates. A strong supporting cast surrounds him led by Feldman, Thompson and Darius Kelly. Crosby enables the Engineers to control the tempo of a game, and that will be a big factor against talented Wilson. The Tigers also have a strong and experienced backcourt in Holmes and Long with Gillette, a transfer from Paul VI, a key addition up front.
