Crossland used two first-half runs to take control and never relinquished the lead as it rolled over Kennedy, 74-51, in the championship of the Bullis boys basketball tournament last night at Bullis.
Maret defeated Bullis, 66-58, in the consolation.
"We had to start off strong because that's our game," said Crossland's Ronald Green, who scored a game-high 19 points. "So we came out running and everything was clicking because they didn't expect it and didn't know what was happening."
Crossland, which advanced to the tournament final by defeating Maret, 63-39, dominated all phases of last night's game. And after Kennedy's Eric Kearney scored giving Kennedy a 5-3 lead with 5:38 remaining in the first quarter, Crossland went on a 13-0 run to take a 16-5 lead.
Crossland (5-2) held Kennedy scoreless for more than 4 1/2 minutes. Kennedy didn't score in double figures until 6:55 was left in the second quarter.
Kennedy (3-6), which advanced by defeating Bullis, 64-56, regrouped momentarily and stayed with Crossland for the beginning of the second period, pulling to within nine, 27-18, on Kearney's two free throws with 4:17 left in the half.
But Crossland took advantage of 12 Kennedy first-half turnovers and held Kennedy scoreless for the next four minutes, going on a 14-0 run, to lead, 39-20, with 15 seconds left in the half.
