Second-ranked Flint Hill made nine of 12 free throws in the last two minutes and Brunswick of Lawrenceville, Va., went scoreless during a crucial four-minute stretch in the fourth quarter as the Falcons scored a 70-62 victory last night at Georgetown University's McDonough Gymnasium.

Aaron Bain, Flint Hill's 6-foot-6 junior who led the Falcons with 24 points, made eight of eight free throws in the final quarter to help the Falcons (18-1) win their 15th consecutive game of the season. Flint Hill's only loss was to Tolentine of New York.

Brunswick (14-2) was led by 6-6 all-America forward Bryant Stith, who finished with a game-high 28 points and 11 rebounds. Stith entered the game averaging 34.0 points and is headed for the University of Virginia next year.

In the first quarter, Flint Hill took an 18-10 lead as its taller front line and 2-3 zone stymied the Bulldogs inside and held Stith to three points.

"We wanted to keep {Stith} off the boards and make sure someone had help whenever he had the ball," said Flint Hill center Brandon Adams. "We knew he liked to use the spin move down low and we used our 2-3 zone to counter."

Stith adjusted in the second quarter by moving out from the low post to get the ball. The result was a nine-point second-quarter outburst as Brunswick closed the gap to 29-24 at the half.

Brunswick scored 10 unanswered points late in the third quarter. Eight straight points by senior Reginald Taylor (21 points) and a steal and an off-balance layup at the buzzer by Stith gave Brunswick a 49-48 lead at the end of three quarters.

A layup by Taylor with 4:15 left brought Brunswick within 57-59, but the Bulldogs didn't score again until a three-pointer by Jay Burke with 55 seconds left. That cut Flint Hill's lead to 65-60.

But Bain's free-throw shooting and balanced scoring from Leslie Hughes (12 points), Reggie Chambers (13) and Ronny Thompson (11) were too much for the Virginia AA team to overcome.
