The city's hoops talent was on full display in College Park last week, with the Poly Engineers and Patterson Clippers taking home the 3A and 2A state boy's basketball championships, respectively. As you might recall from December of last year, CP photog and Poly alum Reginald Thomas II has been tracking the Engineers' season, a year after they won the city championship for the first time in school history but fell short in the states. Part two of that series, which is in this issue, tracks the team through the end of the season, a disappointing loss in the city championship, and its triumph in the state title game. Forward De'Vondre Perry, who was named to The Sun's All-Metro team, sealed the deal at the free-throw line near the end of the game after the Engineers held off two Potomac charges to win 64-63. Baltimore City champions Patterson, led by point guard Gerard Mungo's 19 points, overcame a late deficit to beat Century, 49-43. "Not too many teams win state championships," Perry told The Sun.
