The City girls basketball team Friday night faced Riverdale Baptist - traditionally one of the toughest teams in the state - for the fourth straight time in the fourth annual Breezy Bishop Showcase at Western. This time Riverdale Baptist won, 56-45, as it had in each of the three previous meetings. But this time it was not a blowout, and the No. 7 Knights went home with hope for the rest of their season. "They had quick guards and could make their foul shots," said City senior guard LaShay Taft, who scored 11 points and will attend Syracuse next year.

City guard LaShay Taft had one word for the fourth quarter of last night's game against No. 3 Seton Keough: scary. Seton Keough took a two-point lead into the quarter and boosted it to seven with about six minutes to go, but Taft and fellow guard Breaira Barksdale brought the No. 6 Knights right back. The duo combined for 13 points during a 15-1 fourth-quarter run that sparked the Knights to a 53-49 victory at Western's third annual Breezy Bishop Showcase at Poly. "This is one of the biggest wins for our team at City," Barksdale said, "because it gives us more respect than last year and it gave us confidence that we're going to go to states."

St. Frances guard Shatyra Hawkes knew she was playing a good team last night. She also knew that if the Panthers turned up the defense, the second half belonged to them. They did, and it did. The second-ranked Panthers (3-0) used a combination of tough man-to-man defense and a supercharged transition game to upset St. John the Baptist (West Islip, N.Y.), 56-35, in the Breezy Bishop Classic last night at Western. St. John (5-1) entered the game ranked No. 1 on Long Island in Newsday, and No. 6 in the country in the USA Today poll.

After the third quarter of last night's game against No. 7 Archbishop Spalding, the City girls basketball players wanted to switch from man-to-man defense to zone. Coach George Petrides was fine with that. The zone gave the Cavaliers so much trouble that they hit just one field goal over the next four minutes, enabling the No. 6 Knights to start pulling away from a tie game en route to a 62-52 victory in the Breezy Bishop Showcase at Western. "The 3-2 worked better for us," Knights senior point guard Breaira Barksdale said of their zone.

WESTERN High School's Breezy Bishop is probably the best coach of any sport at any level in Baltimore. (Others will argue for Coppin State's Fang Mitchell and North Baltimore Aquatic Club's Murray Stephens; let them.) Her girls basketball teams have won 424 games and lost 40.Her value to the city magnet school, one of two public high schools for girls in the country, goes further. A phys ed teacher as well, she has guided generations of girls to see how sports NTC dedication can gain them as well as boys admission and financial aid at many fine colleges.
