The loss eliminated the Red Storm (14-6, 8-4) from the Baltimore City Division I title game next Saturday at Morgan State University.

City (16-5, 7-4) built a 14-point halftime lead, but Edmondson scored the first seven points of the second half and continued to chip away at the lead. Keandre Cook made a 3-pointer with nine seconds left to pull within 70-68 . But the Knights' Blair Davis went 1-for-2 from the foul line with four seconds left for the final score.

City coach Daryl Wade thought his team "played pretty good defense" in the first half, and in the second half, "we pulled it out by playing patient basketball, slowing it down."

No. 4 Patterson 63, Dunbar 55: Both teams traded leads early on before Tyquan Pointer made three consecutive 3-pointers and the Clippers (16-3, 9-2) broke away from the Poets (8-6, 5-2).

Gary Blackston had 18 points and Dereck Oliver added 14 points for Patterson.

Patterson next plays City on Tuesday. The Clippers advance to the Baltimore City Division I championship at Morgan State University next Saturday against No. 2 Lake Clifton (17-2, 9-2).

Mervo 59, Northwestern 46: Miquise Campbell scored 21 points and the Mustangs (10-8) beat the host Wildcats (8-9).

Mervo used a diamond press (1-2-1-1) in the second half to cause turnovers.

Atholton 62, Reservoir 56, OT: Brandon Willis made a 3-pointer at the buzzer to force overtime and the Raiders (18-1) outscored the host Gators (11-9) 8-2 in the extra period.

Atholton scored the first four points of overtime. Willis and Cole Mason each had 19 points for the Raiders.

No. 11 C. Milton Wright 61, Joppatowne 56: Corey Bays scored a game-high 24 points to lead the visiting Mustangs (18-1) past the Mariners (14-5).

Catonsville 61, Franklin 47: Antwan Pearson scored 16 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead host Comets (12-7 ) past the Indians (11-6). Brandon Dixon had 30 points for Franklin.

The Indians cut a 15-point lead down to six with 2:28 left in the game, but Catonsville went on an 11-0 run to seal the win. If the Comets wins their final two games against Woodlawn and Western Tech, they will represent Division II in the Baltimore County championship game.
