Roundup (Feb. 29): Woodlawn knocks No. 1 Poly out of regional playoffs

Woodlawn coach Bobby Richardson said balanced scoring has been the key to his team's success all season. It was the key to knocking off the top-ranked team in the Baltimore metro area on Monday night.

Five players reached double figures as the 12th-ranked Warriors (20-3) defeated No. 1 Poly, 78-66, in the Class 3A North Section I semifinals. Juwan Lane, Deontay Marshall, Wayne Massey, Rashard Rice and Derrick Robinson all scored 10 or more for the Warriors.

"That's been our forte, balanced scoring," Richardson said. "We had a good plan and they executed it very well."

Woodlawn will face once-beaten Douglass on Wednesday in the sectional final.

"Our bracket is just a monster," Richardson said.

No. 13 C. Milton Wright 76, Aberdeen 44: Senior Corey Bays pumped in 32 points to lead the Mustangs (20-3) over visiting Aberdeen in a 3A North Section II semifinal.

Bays scored eight straight points as part of an 10-0 CMW run in the opening quarter that put his team ahead, 13-6, after trailing 4-0 early. Bays (five assists) and teammate Chris Lorenzo hit back-to-back 3-pointers to push the lead to 22-11 in the first minute of play in quarter two. Aberdeen (13-10) stayed within 28-22 at halftime with the inside play of Jordon Jones (14 points, eight rebounds) and Maurice Carroll (15 points, nine rebounds). Lorenzo's second 3-pointer pushed the lead to 37-27 early in the third, and the Mustangs rolled from there. Lorenzo finished with 15.

Glen Burnie 55, Old Mil 53: The Gophers came back from a double-digit deficit to narrowly escape in the 4A East Region Section I semifinal.

Dayvon Cuffey, who had 14 points, 15 rebounds and two assists, made a field goal with 1 minuted, 13 seconds remaining to knot the score at 51. After the Patriots' Camari Wilkerson sunk a pair from the free throw line to give him a game-high 36 points, Eric Powell hit a layup and was fouled. But Powell missed the chance for a three-point play to again tie the score at 53. Cuffey sank a pair from the charity stripe with 11.8 seconds left for the game's final points.

Wilde Lake 73, Glenelg 70: Wilde Lake continued its late-season surge on Monday in the 3A East region quarterfinals as Baimba Stubblefield scored a team-high 17 points, including 12 in the second half, to lead a comeback from being down nine late in the third quarter. The Wildecats regrouped to go on a 19-3 run between the end of the third and beginning of the fourth quarter to take a lead the team never lost. Wilde Lake (8-16) had five players score eight or more points on the way to earning the team's sixth win in the last nine games after winning just twice prior to that. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak by Glenelg (14-10).
