The Severna Park girls basketball team didn't go far from the basket to get positive results against visiting Glen Burnie last night.
With senior forwards Lauren Wyble and Jen Wiley controlling the boards and taking turns scoring, the No. 11 Falcons came away with a comfortable 72-51 win in Anne Arundel play.
Wyble finished with a game-high 24 points and Wiley had 19 as Severna Park improved to 6-0.
It was a 12-0 run at the start of the second quarter that turned a three-point deficit into a 26-17 lead for the Falcons, who got 14 points each from their two post players in the first half to enjoy a 38-25 lead at the break.
"I felt this was more of a complete game underneath for us tonight," said Severna Park coach Dave Griffith. "We've been getting scoring from one and rebounding from the other, but tonight, both low-post players stepped up and gave us good scoring and rebounding. They both worked real well together."
Severna Park also got a 15-point performance from Laura Wyble. The Gophers (1-5) got 15 points from Shautauqua Down and 10 more from Lakiva Brown.
Centennial 58, Atholton 56: Center/forward Katie Barrett led all scorers with 16 points and the Eagles (4-3) held off the Raiders (3-4).
The Eagles went up by five points with 42 seconds left on a fast-break layup by Caitlin Burr. Allie Scott (13 points) made three of four foul shots at the end for Atholton, but it wasn't enough.
No. 10 Randallstown 69, Parkville 64: Joe Higgens and David Venable led an 8-0 fourth-quarter run for the visiting Rams (5-0) that erased a six-point deficit against the Knights (2-3).
Higgens finished with a team-high 17 points and Venable added 16 in the win. Mark Dickerson had 20 points to lead four double-figure scorers for Parkville.
No. 12 McDonogh 73, Gilman 47: DaJuan Summers set a career high with 30 points for the host Eagles (8-2) in a nonconference win over the Greyhounds (7-5).
