FLINT HILL 62, BROOKE POINT 60

Flint Hill senior Isaiah Moore buried a three with just a few seconds left on the clock as Flint Hill stopped Brooke Point.

Up double-digits early thanks to 12 points from Moore, the Huskies relinquished the lead early in the fourth quarter. Brooke Point buried three-pointer after three-pointer, finishing with nine as a team. But Moore (21 points) and center Qudus Wahab (20 points, 21 rebounds) got the job done.

MADISON 62, ANNANDALE 50

The Warhawks stifled Annandale with its 1-3-1 late, holding the Atoms to seven fourth quarter points on the way to the victory.

Madison led most of the game, but Annandale used a blistering performance by guard Matt McKiver in the third quarter to storm back and eventually take the lead. McKiver had 18 points off the bench for Annandale, and Junior Lotongo added 12 points and four assists.

For Madison, John Finney led the way with 18 points and four assists. Aaron Darab had 10 points with Johnny Hecht adding eight points, nine boards and five assists. Coach Kevin Roller got a nice lift from his bench, with guard TJ Ulrich scoring 10 and center Damon Koskovich eight.

MCLEAN 53, JEFFERSON 42

Matias Prock scored 20 points on 13-14 free throw shooting, as McLean stopped Jefferson 53-42.

Jefferson only trailed by one at halftime, thanks mainly to the efforts of senior guard Noah Barnes. Barnes had 15 by intermission, but the Highlanders held him to just four points in the second half. McLean did a great job forcing turnovers and attacking the rim, as evidenced by the 27 free throws the Highlanders attempted. The Colonials, by contrast, only got to the line three times on the evening.

Sean Senft had 11 points for McLean, which advances to face Forest Park in the semi-finals. Jefferson got good support from its bench in the loss, as sophomore guards Alex Yu and Kunal Sharma contributed 14 points combined.

Forest Park’s bench contributed 25 points with junior forward Darryl Garib (14 points) and senior guard Myles Crawley (eight points) leading the way, plus senior forward Trenton Bean crashing the boards (six rebounds). Sophomore guard Coretez Lewis had 10 points, while fellow starter Kobi Johnson had a good all-around game with six points, seven rebounds and five assists.

Sophomore guard Josh Abtew kept the Rebels within striking distance for much of the game. He had 20 points including four three-pointers. But Fairfax did not shoot well enough to ever seriously threaten. The Rebels were 4-19 from long range as a team and shot 25% from the field on the evening.
