Every offseason in Baltimore, some of the city's top players transfer high schools in search of what they hope is a better basketball situation. From an outsider's perspective, it might have appeared that John Crosby was doing the same when he left City last spring and landed at Poly in the fall. But the 6-foot-3, 186-pound point guard was hardly putting basketball first when he left one of the city's top magnet schools for another. “It was more of an academic decision,” Crosby said.

Before last spring, John Crosby “really didn't know too much about Dayton.” Then the former Poly star watched the Flyers beat Ohio State, Syracuse and Stanford en route to the Elite Eight of the 2014 NCAA tournament. “I've been a fan, but then I had a chance to get recruited and got to see it right there,” said Crosby, who is currently doing a post-grad year at the New Hampton (N.H.) School. “I was excited to get down to campus. I was more sold on just seeing how I would fit in [and]

Poly senior guard John Crosby didn't have one of his better shooting nights Wednesday at No. 1 St. Frances, but that wasn't going to stop him in the closing seconds with the game in the balance. With the No. 8 Engineers trailing by one point, the ball was in his hands with 30 seconds left. Crosby held the ball for the first 10, then started to the basket before pulling up just behind the foul line to hit a game-winning basket he would never forget. The Engineers had to make one final stop with St Frances getting one last shot up before the visitors secured a 52-51 win over the Panthers in a battle of undefeated teams.

The undefeated City boys basketball team was clearly amped up to get the playoffs started, and that showed early in Tuesday's game against visiting Poly. First, Timmy Bond went over a defender to get above the rim and dunk home two points early in the first quarter. Less than a minute later, Kamau Stokes finished off a nifty reverse layup in transition. The No. 1 Knights attacked the basket relentlessly, hit their open jumpers and methodically separated themselves from the Engineers to come away with a 78-66 win in the Class 3A East Section I semifinal.

By Glenn Graham ,The Baltimore Sun The Edmondson boys basketball team has a largely different cast from last year's Class 2A state title team, but the new Red Storm certainly appear to have many of the same qualities. This year's team plays the same scrappy defense, shares the basketball on offense and has a knack for finding ways to win games. More proof came Friday at No. 5 Poly, where No. 6 Edmondson started fast and was able to maintain a safe margin throughout a 73-61 win over the Engineers.

The No. 8 City boys basketball team gained a lot from a 68-53 win over No. 12 Poly on Friday in a regular-season finale that helped to determine the final spot in next week's Baltimore City Division I championship game. A strong collective effort led the Knights (17-5, 10-2 in Baltimore City Division I) to the victory over the visiting Engineers. The win helped City put aside the disappointing performance that came in Tuesday's 61-45 home loss to No. 3 Dunbar. But City's win ultimately proved to help No. 6 Edmondson the most as the Red Storm, which defeated Patterson on Friday, 70-52, advanced to play defending champion Dunbar in Tuesday's Division I city championship at Morgan State.

The Lake Clifton boys basketball team is mostly quick and small, and the Lakers are well-aware there will be games when they have to scrap for everything to get a win. Against bigger and stronger Randallstown at the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials Board 290 Memorial Mixer at Northwestern on Thursday, the Lakers faced one of those games. Lake Clifton found a way to beat the No.12 Rams' press just enough times, hit just enough shots, grab just enough rebounds and tirelessly defend to earn a 60-53 win. Senior guard Daquan Ross had a game-high 18 points and junior forward Tavon Coleman added 12 for the Lakers.
