Games to Watch
C.H. Flowers vs. Oxon Hill at Run 'n' Shoot, Friday, 7: Oxon Hill defeated C.H. Flowers in overtime, 65-62, on Jan. 3. The Jaguars then lost four of their next five games but rebounded and entered this week on a three-game winning streak. Oxon Hill, meantime, has yet to stumble in Prince George's 4A League play this season and had lost only once in 47 league games since the start of the 2000-01 season.
Suitland at Crossland, Friday, 7: The two most prolific offenses in the Prince George's 4A League meet in Temple Hills. Crossland has scored 73.5 points per game, and Suitland has put up 68.6 points per outing. In the teams' first meeting of the season, Suitland senior forward Deyon Williams's layup with 15 seconds left proved to be the difference in the Rams' 60-59 victory on Jan. 3.
Forestville at Bladensburg, Friday, 7: Three of the top five scorers in the Prince George's 3A/2A/1A League entering the week will be on the court in Bowie. Forestville is led by the stellar back court of sophomore Yolanda Lavender (19.7 points) and junior guard Felicia Terrell (15.5), and Bladensburg relies on junior guard Kolade Aderoju (15.1).
DuVal at Gwynn Park, Monday, 1: A pair of defending state champions, as well as two of the Prince George's 3A/2A/1A League's best defenses, meet in Brandywine. The first meeting, however, produced a one-sided, 60-27 Gwynn Park victory on Jan. 10. That game came in the midst of a nine-game winning streak the Yellow Jackets carried into this week. DuVal has not lost since, a string of six games.
