Trailing by nine points to St. Frances after a jittery first half, the Calvert Hall boys basketball team didn't discuss strategy or adjustments at halftime. The message from the coaches was simple and direct: Go harder. The No. 2 Cardinals responded with a 15-3 run to open the third quarter and finished strong to pull away for a 69-62 home win over the No. 7 Panthers in the regular-season finale for both teams. The win ended a run of eight straight wins by St. Frances over Calvert Hall, dating back to the 2010-11 season.

The Blast had the same three-point lead going into the fourth quarter of Friday's game against Syracuse that it did on the road Sunday against the Silver Knights, who ended up coming from behind to win. It wasn't going to happen a second time at Baltimore Arena. This time, the Blast protected its advantage and added to it before coming away with a 10-5 win in front of an announced 4,030. "It was nice to come back after losing a game in Syracuse that I really thought we should have won," coach Danny Kelly said of the 9-8 loss that ended the Blast's seven-game winning streak.

The Edmondson and New Town boys basketball teams were making it hard on each other to score baskets in a game at Friday's 18th Annual Basketball Academy, with tough defense having the bigger say. Titans guard Danny Shand was able to find his offense at just the right time. The senior captain scored all of his game-high 16 points in the fourth quarter, helping No. 14 New Town rally for a 49-44 upset win over No. 4 Edmondson at Morgan State. New Town didn't make its first field goal until there was 5:06 left to play in the first half, and the team had scored only 22 points going into the fourth quarter.

As the fourth quarter began in the Armed Forces Bowl, things looked a bit ugly for Navy. Locked in a tight, ugly, chippy game with Middle Tennessee State, the Midshipmen hadn't moved the ball well since the first quarter. And they had uncharacteristically hurt themselves with four fumbles, including two that were lost. Not to mention that they had lost their starting center and top two strong safeties to injuries and an ejection. As it turns out, Navy (9-4) had everything under control.
