Aquille Carr scored 61 points for Patterson when the Clippers played Forest Park last year. But he didn't need to do as much this time, and that made coach Harry Martin a happy man. Carr finished with a game-high 24 points, as No. 3 Patterson defeated No. 8 Forest Park, 79-63 on Monday night. Patterson not only had Carr's complete play, but benefited from strong performances by Nymee Manns, Devin Hebron and Leonard Livingston. This game didn't affect the Baltimore City standings, but a Patterson win over Carver later this week secures the Clippers a spot to play No. 7 Dunbar in the Division I title game, probably next week.

To the casual local basketball observer, it may have seemed unlikely that Forest Park would be able to duplicate the success of its 2010-11 season. The Foresters lost their top two scorers off a 17-6 team that fell to Northwestern in the title game of the Baltimore City Division II title game. Sharod Hartgrove , who averaged more than 17 points as a junior, transferred to Digital Harbor in the offseason, and Quentin Judd , who scored 20 per game, graduated. Forest Park coach Greate White , however, was confident that his 2011-12 squad could be similarly successful.

The No. 4 Mount St. Joseph basketball team was coming off an emotional win over No. 5 John Carroll, and Glenelg Country School in its first year in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference has played the role of spoiler before, but this time the upset wasn't to be. The host Dragons made more field goals, but Mount St. Joseph won, 69-64, from the free-throw line Thursday. The Gaels (16-2) had as many 3-pointers as 2-pointers (nine each) but shot 24-for-27 from the foul line.

As No. 7 Lake Clifton whittled away host Forest Park's 10-point lead, freshman point guard Teion James was sent back in to protect the ball and the Forresters held on Tuesday to upset the Lakers, 83-80. James (14 points) had left the game because of a bloody jersey. During his absence, Lake Clifton double-teamed the ball, forcing turnovers and cutting the lead. Rysheed Corbin had 32 points for the Forresters, and the Lakers' Aaron Parks led all scorers with 33. Forest Park led 19-15 after the first quarter before Lake Clifton took a 41-36 lead at the half.

Host Dunbar proved it deserved its No. 4 ranking with its very first game Tuesday. Evan Singletary scored a game-high 21 points, and the Poets beat Theodore Roosevelt (D.C.), 65-50. Dunbar split its offense between set half-court plays and a full-court press to take a 37-33 lead at the break. The Rough Riders fell to 1-1. No. 3 St. Frances 92, Mount Carmel 45: Maurice White had 16 points and Michael Warren added 12 as the host Panthers (2-0) beat the Cougars (2-1). The Panthers, who beat No. 14 Calvert Hall, 72-62, on Saturday, used a full-court press to take a 48-22 lead at the half.

No longer burdened by the foul trouble that limited his play in the first half, Patterson sophomore point guard Aquille Carr did in the second half what he's done all season for the No. 1 Clippers — take over a basketball game. That the competition was for the Baltimore City Division I championship, that the opponent was two-time defending Class 2A state champion City, and that the venue was bigger than usual — a packed house at Morgan State — didn't matter to the 5-foot-6 Carr, an All-Metro selection.

The Aquille Carr-led Patterson boys basketball team is fast, skilled and simply daring opponents to try to keep up this season. Forest Park was the latest team that proved no match in the championship game of the Bill Miller Christmas Classic at Patterson. With Carr scoring a career-high 57 points, the No. 2 Clippers ran away with the tournament title, coming away with a convincing 103-71 win over the No. 11 Foresters. Patterson improves to 8-0 on the season and, in typical fashion, it was a dominating performance from the 5-foot-8 Carr — a first-team All-Metro sophomore guard — that shined in the most recent win. "To score 57 points is an incredible effort at this level," said Patterson coach Harry Martin.
