The Digital Harbor boys basketball team came to the 13th annual Basketball Academy yesterday with a game plan against Woodlawn that would make the Ravens proud: wreak havoc on defense and play efficiently on offense. The No. 5 Rams hassled the No. 10 Warriors into 31 turnovers and Justin Jackson, Davon Usher and George Jackson provided most of the offense in a sturdy 55-45 win at Morgan State. Digital Harbor, which was coming off a win over Owings Mills in the tournament opener Thursday, improved to 9-3. Woodlawn fell to 7-6. The Rams took a 18-13 lead into the third quarter and maintained a two-possession lead or better throughout the period before pulling away in the fourth.

Judging by the Digital Harbor boys basketball team's first six quarters in the 12th annual Basketball Academy, it didn't seem as if their participation in the mixer would be a big success. The team lost to unranked Parkville on Thursday and was held to 12 points in the first half against New Town yesterday at Morgan State. Going into the second half, the Rams re-established what earned them their No. 6 ranking - playing tough defense and getting the ball into the hands of George and Justin Jackson.

COLLEGE PARK -Digital Harbor junior guard Justin Jackson best summed up the No. 6 Rams' Class 1A state championship win over pesky Pocomoke with a quick look to his right and another to his left before smiling and adding some fitting words. The first look went to teammate Davon Usher, and then he glanced over to his brother, George, and said: "Davon took over the first half, and he [George] took over the second. ... They both looked like Michael Jordan out there." Usher, a junior forward, scored 17 of his game-high 21 points in the first half to help the Rams take a 16-point halftime lead.

As seniors on the defending Class 1A state champion Digital Harbor boys basketball team, small forward Davon Usher and point guard Justin Jackson are well aware it is their turn to lead. In the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's game against last year's 3A state champion Lake Clifton, the two took turns doing just that. In a rematch of last year's Baltimore City championship game, comfortably won by the host Lakers, it was Usher and Jackson who took over in the important minutes, doing the little things and combining to score 46 points to lead the No. 11 Rams to a 72-64 upset of the No. 4 Lakers.

With 1.9 seconds left in a tie game against fifth-ranked Milford Mill on Friday, Digital Harbor's Davon Usher was looking for the inbound pass from teammate Justin Jackson because it is a play they practiced all season. Jackson lofted the pass from about midcourt toward the 6-foot-6 Usher, who snagged the ball under the basket and then hit a fall-away jumper as time expired to give the Rams a 49-47 victory at the 14th annual Basketball Academy at Morgan State. Usher and Jackson each had 19 points and helped Digital Harbor go on a late run to seal the victory "We run that play all the time in practice and [Digital Harbor coach Johnnie Grimes]

During last year's run to the Class 1A state title, New Town was led by the savvy play of a guard. Stuart Clarke, now a junior, was a major reason why the Titans won the 1A crown. In the Titans' 1A quarterfinal game against host Digital Harbor last night, there was savvy play by another junior guard. Fortunately for the Rams, he was on their team. George Jackson's poised play led the Rams to a 56-50 victory over the defending champion Titans. "George is just a wonderful point guard to have," Rams senior forward Jermaine Edwards said.
