No. 10 Edmondson fell behind early to No.13 Lake Clifton before settling down and into unselfish play and quick-change defenses to win, 63-52, in boys basketball Tuesday night. The Red Storm (12-3) used ball-movement and good shot selection to build a lead. An ever-changing defense, from man-to-man to box-and-one to 1-3-1, kept the host Lakers (10-5) off balance. Isaiah Tripp and Darius Walker each scored 14 points to power Edmondson, which next faces Riverdale Baptist at 8 p.m. Friday in the 17th annual Basketball Academy at Morgan State.

After a year away, the Basketball Academy returns to a college campus, Morgan State, for the 17 t h annual event that combines academics and service learning with three days of top-notch high school boys and girls basketball Thursday through Saturday. Last January, The Basketball Academy games had to be moved to Lake Clifton and the academic components to Mervo after a new NCAA rule banned basketball tournaments run by non-scholastic entities from Division I campuses. The rule aimed to prevent college programs from gaining a recruiting advantage by colluding with organizers to bring events such as AAU tournaments to their campuses.

Randallstown coach Kevin English knows exactly what it takes to win a state title, having won one as a player at Milford Mill in 1992. He continually reinforces to his players that it starts with hard work. This season, the No. 14 Rams are putting in the time and it's shows. They are 14-3 going into Wednesday night's game against Pikesville and have won six straight -- scoring 100 or more points in three of their past five games. On Thursday, Randallstown will take on No. 8 Poly in the opening night of the 17th annual Basketball Academy and will then face No. 6 City on Saturday.   English, also a science teacher at Randallstown, is 77-36 in his five seasons.

The Basketball Academy moves back to a college campus, Morgan State, for the 17th annual event that combines academic and service learning with three days of top-notch high school girls and boys basketball action from Jan. 24 to 26. Last year, the Basketball Academy was moved to Lake Clifton after an NCAA rule change banned "nonscholastic" high school basketball events from Division I college campuses. Even then Academy officials were certain that the scholastic component of their event -- which mandates all student participants take classes in SAT preparation, financial literacy, gang awareness and/or bullying prevention -- would allow it back on a college campus.

The No. 2 Milford Mill boys basketball team made its case to take over the area's No. 1 ranking with a win over top-ranked Dunbar at the 16th annual Basketball Academy on Thursday night. But there was still some work left in the Academy on Saturday against No. 8 Lake Clifton, and the Lakers spoiled the Millers' plans. With a dominating fourth quarter filled with disciplined zone defense, key baskets and poise at the free throw line, the host Lakers pulled away for a hard-earned 55-46 win. Junior guard Daquan Ross scored a game-high 16 points, senior forward Aaron Parks added 11, and a collective team effort on defense limited the Millers (13-2)
