The Edmondson boys basketball team knew exactly what it was in for going into Friday's Class 1A South region championship against Baltimore City rival Lake Clifton. Coach Darnell Dantzler told his No. 11 Red Storm that, to win, it would take maximum effort from every player. For senior guard Chaz Lassiter, that effort was shown in a 16-point performance, including 6-for-6 work at the free throw line in the fourth quarter. For junior forward Kani Coles, it was controlling the boards and scoring a couple big baskets when they were hard to come by down the stretch.

For the first three-plus quarters of Saturday's Baltimore City Division I boys basketball championship game, scrappy Lake Clifton was doing all the little things a little bit better against No. 1 and undefeated City. And then, City senior guards Kamau Stokes and Omari George had seen enough. First it was Stokes who hit a big 3-pointer. Then it was George's turn. He scrapped for an offensive rebound, got fouled and made two free throws. The next possession George did the same, this time making the follow shot and converting a three-point play.

Rodney Hawkins graduated from Lake Clifton last spring with no college plans and “nothing at all” happening in his basketball recruitment. The 6-foot-7 forward had moved back to Baltimore for his senior season after a three-year stint in Georgia, where his mother was transferred for her military job. But although he played well for the Lakers, college interest never came. “I didn't know what I was going to do,” Hawkins said. “I wasn't surprised, this being my first time coming back.” Last fall, however, Hawkins' recruitment picked up considerably thanks to him joining Mt. Zion Prep, a first-year post-grad program in Northeast Baltimore.

For his final year of college basketball, Terence Jones knew exactly what he wanted in a program. The former Lake Clifton guard wanted to play for a school that would offer more exposure for him than he received at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. He wanted to step into a situation where playing time was available from Day One. And he wanted to play for a coaching staff that knew how to win. In the University of Alabama-Birmingham, Jones found all that and more. The 6-foot-2, 187-pound player committed to the Blazers at the end of a visit to the Conference USA school Saturday night.

The Lake Clifton boys basketball team doesn't have the flashy player who can pour in points. And the No. 10 Lakers often give up size any time they go up against the other top teams in Baltimore City. To make up for any shortcomings, they work hard in practice, play smart and tenacious team defense and, most importantly, believe in each other. After falling behind by a point at No. 7 Edmondson in the closing seconds of overtime on Tuesday, Lake Clifton was confident it would find a way to win. Senior Stephon Brown, a 5-foot-5 guard, made sure, hitting a jumper with nine seconds left in overtime to give the Lakers a grind-it-out, 43-42 win over the host Red Storm.
