Atholton 57, Hammond 28
The Raiders turned up the defense and held Hammond under 30 points for the third time this season, cruising to a 29-point victory on the road. Atholton got a team-high 13 points from Ethan Shapiro, along with another 11 points from Michael Bernetti.
“I think one thing we did really well was our defense and that’s what we’ve prided ourselves on all year,” coach Jared Albert said. “We did a good job controlling the boards and letting our defense create offense. We limited them to one shot almost the entire game.”
Atholton finished the game 20-29 from the foul line and had 11 different players score. Hammond was led by Andre McFadden’s 15 points in the loss.
The Raiders now advance to face Reservoir on Thursday in the region quarterfinals.
A (11-12): Brickous 2, Mason 2, Casey 6, D. Bernetti 6, Shapiro 13, M. Bernetti 11, Courtney 8, Purdue 2, Florenzo 2, Ballmer 3, Fleming 2.
Ha (0-23): Anderson 5, Washington 2, McFadden 15, Dontae Ross 4, Collins 2.
Centennial 53, Stephen Decatur 37
The Eagles established control of the game early, going ahead 18-6 after the first quarter, and never trailed the rest of the way. “We came out and were ready to go,” Centennial coach Chad Hollwedel said. “Joe Eads had our first six points of the game and we were scoring off our stuff in the half-court, really running our stuff well.”
Omari Ringgold (16 points) and Timi Tinuoye (14) led the way for Centennial, which withstood a small push from Stephen Decatur in the second quarter to eventually pull away for the double-digit win. Ty Hunter led Decatur with 22 points.
Centennial will play River Hill in the region quarterfinals Thursday.
