In the realm of prep basketball, Dunbar High isn't merely a house of worship. It's Mecca, Mount Sinai and the Vatican combined. The highlights of the East Baltimore school's basketball legacy aren't celebrated in stained glass panels, but in championship banners draped across the gym. The school's team has been declared best in the nation three times, including last year when it was 29-0.So it isn't surprising that a superior player like Norman Nolan, 6-foot-7, would want to play for the Poets.

With a minute left and victory in hand, the No. 2 Dunbar boys basketball team played an impressive game of keep-away from No. 1 Patterson. Swiftly covering all four corners in the half-court, every Poet touched the ball before Rodrick Harrison found Aaron Parham alone under the basket for an easy two points with 54 seconds left. It was a fitting ending for Dunbar, which used balanced scoring and a stingy zone defense to keep the visiting Clippers frustrated for most of Friday night's game on their way to a 64-55 victory.

The last time Dunbar faced a top-notch Baltimore County team, it routed Milford Mill in the state 1A regional final last season. The Poets were spurred on in that game by comments by some Milford Mill players in an newspaper article preceding the game.Last night, No. 5 Woodlawn gained a rare opportunity to face Dunbar in the Fuel Fund Classic at the Baltimore Arena. And while the Warriors didn't spend the time preceding the matchup shooting off at the mouth, their shooting proved to have the damaging effect.

A packed gym is a definite Friday at Dunbar when the No. 2 Poets boys basketball team plays host to No. 1 Patterson.  Game time is set for 5:15 p.m., and anyone interested in attending should buy tickets in advance and plan to arrive much earlier. Dunbar coach Cyrus Jones said 1,000 tickets will be sold to reach the gym's capacity and people will be turned away after that. Tickets are on sale now at both Dunbar and Patterson.  The junior varsity game is set for 3:45 p.m., so it's likely the line will begin to form before that game.
