Milford Mill coach Mike Silverman reached deep into his playbook for a defensive adjustment that helped the Millers turn around Friday night's game vs. Dunbar. Silverman didn't like how often the Poets were getting shots on drives to the hoop, so he switched to the rarely-used 3-2 zone defense. That move paid off as the Millers limited No. 12 Dunbar to only three second-half baskets as No. 2 Milford Mill pulled away for a 56-44 victory in the 18th Annual Basketball Academy tournament at Morgan State.

In his fifth season coaching at his alma mater, Jones guided the Poets' storied program back to the top of the area rankings. Finishing 24-3, Dunbar won the Baltimore City Division I championship for the first time since 2004 and captured a third consecutive Class 1A state title. With the 60-36 victory over New Town in the final, Dunbar tied Allegany for the most state crowns with 14 and Jones earned his 100th win. After opening the season with 13 straight wins, the Poets went on a midseason skid, losing three of five games.

- Dunbar made its first ever trip to the state Class 1A volleyball tournament at Ritchie Coliseum last night. Unfortunately for the Poets, the trip was not a fruitful one. Dunbar gave Perryville (13-6) all it could handle in two of three games, but fell to the Panthers 25-21, 25-7, 25-22. Tara Holland led Dunbar with six digs and three kills. Perryville was led by Morgan Tennant with 22 assists. The Panthers will play Smithsburg, a 3-0 winner in the other semifinal, on Friday at 6 p.m. for the Class 1A state title.

Running back Sherrod Hawkes has earned a special place in the heart of second-year Patterson coach Larry Mitchell. On the Clippers' biggest stage of the season Friday night, that place was the spotlight. "We call Sherrod 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,'" Mitchell said. "We told him we're having Christmas early, and we needed him to guide our sled. " Hawkes did just that, running over, around and often times through Dunbar's beleaguered defense, racking up 239 yards on 27 carries and scoring both of his team's touchdowns as Patterson shocked the host and No. 13 Poets, 14-0, in the Class 2A North final.

When coach Corey Johnson took over Edmondson's football team last summer, he thought the Red Storm's defense would be pretty good. Even he didn't expect it to be this good. The Red Storm has shut out five of its last six opponents including City, 44-0 last week, and No. 5 Dunbar, 14-0 Friday. The Poets had not been held scoreless in seven years - not since the last time Edmondson beat them, 12-0, on Oct. 6, 2006. That year, Edmondson went on to win the Class 2A state championship, its only state football title.

Coming off its first loss of the season, the No. 1 Dunbar boys basketball team was back on the court at Saturday's final day of the Basketball Academy at Lake Clifton, and getting a considerable push from Friendly. The Poets, while not completely on their game, still found the resources to earn a 55-44 win over the Patriots of Prince George's County. Senior forward Gavin Pettiford dominated inside, finishing with 18 points. Senior guard Evan Singletary added 10, and sophomore guard Keandre Gibson provided key fourth-quarter minutes in the win. Dunbar, which fell to No. 2 Milford Mill, 55-53, on Thursday, improved to 14-1 on the season, while Friendly fell to 7-7. After getting a 3-pointer from junior guard Wilbur Young in the closing seconds of the second quarter to take a 25-19 lead at the half, the Poets scored the first six points in the third quarter to seemingly take control at 31-19.

Dunbar football coach Lawrence Smith said Tuesday he would not support a boycott of the fall season by Poets players as a means of protesting his one-year suspension. At a meeting Monday night attended by about 40 parents and football players, some players talked about boycotting the season after Smith, who led the Poets to five state titles in his seven years as head coach, was suspended in the aftermath of a Baltimore City Public Schools investigation into an alleged hazing incident last fall in the Dunbar locker room.
