HANCOCK - The Broadfording Christian Academy boys basketball team demonstrated that the best things in life really can be free. Free throws, that is. The Lions hit 34 of 46 foul shots, including 18-for-22 from the line in the fourth quarter, to take down Hancock 57-46 on Thursday night. And in the end, it made both teams 4-8 for the season. The foul line became even more important as the score was tied at 33-33 after three quarters. The Lions only managed three baskets in the final eight minutes but still outscored the Panthers 24-13 with the help of the 18 points from the foul line.

Williamsport boys basketball coach Scott Mowbray was gracious in defeat. “(South Carroll) used that half-court, run-and-jump defense against us,” he said. “We played a heck of a defensive game. I'm proud of our guys. Our problem today was on offense.” Anything else after that might have been bleeped - or whistled - out. The Wildcats came out on the short end of a tightly called game - being held to a total of five points in the even quarters - on Thursday as South Carroll pulled away for a 43-27 victory in the Maryland Class 2A West quarterfinals.

They could just turn around and lay it up.” Center Seth Myers scored eight consecutive points to help Linganore (4-16)
