When senior point guard Elijah Kess was a sophomore reserve and Lake Clifton was getting ready to play in the state title game, Lakers' coach Herman "Tree" Harried pulled him aside. "You're a tenth grader and about to win a state title," the player said he was told. Kess says it was the best day of his life - the Lakers indeed brought home a state crown - and now he's striving to one-up it. In his second year as a starter and team captain, he knows it's his turn to lead the Lakers to another championship.

Aaron Parks always assumed he'd play college basketball somewhere on the East Coast. That notion, however, changed in a hurry for the Lake Clifton grad about one week ago. Parks, who has spent the past year at Notre Dame Prep (Mass.), got a call from an assistant coach at Cal State Northridge inviting him to take an official visit to the Big West school. So the 6-foot-3, 198-pound combo guard packed his bags for Southern California over the weekend and returned home to Baltimore as the Matadors' newest commitment.

The No. 2 John Carroll boys basketball team has been forced to work some extra lately, something the Patriots believe will help when the fast-approaching playoffs come about. For the second time in the past week, the Patriots were taken into overtime Tuesday, this time by a scrappy Calvert Hall team that would not back down in regulation. The four minutes of extra time was when John Carroll showed its poise and determination, coming away with a 56-48 win in Bel Air. The Patriots, who needed overtime to beat McDonogh last week, improved to 27-1 overall and 11-0 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and the Baltimore Catholic League.

COLLEGE PARK - With six minutes left in Friday night's Class 2A state semifinal game, the Lake Clifton boys basketball team finally got what it wanted. For most of the game, including seven-plus minutes of the second quarter, the No. 4 Lakers challenged No. 12 South Carroll to get out of its zone defense by holding onto the ball. Protecting a seven-point lead at that time in the fourth quarter, the Lakers finally got their wish, and a few moments later they were celebrating a berth in Saturday's championship game with a 46-34 win over the Cavaliers at Comcast Center.

COLLEGE PARK - After the final buzzer sounded in Saturday's Class 2A state title game, Lake Clifton guard Aaron Parks immediately dropped to the floor. He remained there, face-down, for several seconds until a teammate yanked him up and coach Herman "Tree" Harried met both with outstretched arms and a huge grin. "We worked so hard all year, and this was just a relief," Parks said. "I just had to collapse. " Parks and the Lakers desperately wanted a state title, and they got their wish.
