KEYS TO VICTORY

Poly had an easy time at City, 60-37, in the teams' Baltimore City Division I opener on Dec. 15. The Engineers have continued to roll in league play — owning first place with a 4-0 mark — and the Knights have since rattled off four straight wins to take hold of second place at 4-1. In the first meeting, the Engineers took advantage of their bigger size, spreading the floor to get good shots and controlling the boards. Mims led the way with 20 points with Perry adding 11. The Knights come into this game with more confidence and an understanding of what they'll need to do this time to get a better result. Stronger team defense and rebounding is an absolute must. Offensively, the Knights had good looks in the first meeting, but their shots weren't falling. Mitchell's versatile game will be a key for the Knights at the offensive end.
