Junior guard Falu Seck hit three 3-pointers in a 90-second span at the end of the first half to fire up Springbrook, and the visiting Blue Devils went on to defeat Dulaney, 69-45, in the Class 4A North Region championship Monday night at Dulaney High School.
Seck finished with 18 points and 10 assists.
Teammate E. J. Dyson, a junior forward, scored a game-high 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.
Seck and Dyson helped Springbrook, of Montgomery County, advance to play Meade Thursday at the University of Maryland's Xfinity Center at 9 p.m.
"They are tough and physical," said Dulaney coach Matt Lochte, whose team also lost to Springbrook in the region final last year by 30 points. "They just buy in. They believe and are winners."
"I told my kids, 'The first four minutes of the third quarter is going to be very, very important,'" Springbrook first-year coach Darnell Myers said. "My kids were hot and played really well in that stretch."
Walker, a junior point guard, chipped in 16 points. Dwyer, Gary Bernardez and Jair Williams had six points each for Dulaney.
