Kodye Pugh scored 12 of his 22 points in the first half and No. 12 Boys' Latin beat host No. 10 St. Vincent Pallotti, 80-65, in basketball Friday.
The Lakers improved to 15-4 overall and 9-0 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference. The Panthers fell to 14-4, 4-2
Boys' Latin coach Cliff Rees credited unselfish play, with five of his six scorers in double figures. He added that fast breaks helped start the Lakers off to a 39-27 lead at halftime.
"Both teams played fast. Pallotti didn't have a great night shooting and that lead to scoring opportunities for us on the other end," Rees said.
Pallotti point guard Edwin Cancel left the game with an injury in the second quarter, which disrupted the Panthers' offensive set pieces, Rees said. Still, Harlyn Owens finished with a game-high 26 points for Pallotti.
