THE SKINNY
Haverford used a late run in the second half to secure a defensive battle and 51-43 win at McDaniel.

THE LEADERS
• Mike Wallace (Wilmington, Del./Salesianum School) led the Green Terror with 19 points and six assists.
• Charles Contee (Huntingtown, Md./Huntingtown) added 12 points.

FOR THE FOES
• Harry Johnson paced the Fords with 13 points and seven rebounds.
• Nate Torres chipped in 10 points.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• The teams traded points over the first seven minutes of the contest before baskets from Gabriel Franklin and Harry Johnson more than two minutes apart opened up a 10-6 edge for Haverford with 10:42 on the clock. Mike Wallace hit a triple with 9:50 showing to close the deficit to 12-11 before Charles Contee converted off a Wallace steal-and-pass for a 13-12 edge. The Green Terror pushed the lead to 20-14 on a Wallace layup with 3:59 to play. A Johnson triple with 2:55 remaining and a Kaelen Kanealey (Rochester, N.Y./Irondequoit) layup with 1:50 showing made it a 22-17 game at the break.
• Haverford netted the first seven points of the second half to take a 24-22 edge on a Johnson layup with 18:03 on the clock. Three of the Fords' five second-half 3-pointers came in a 55-second span that pushed the lead to 33-25 with 14:09 to play and forced a McDaniel timeout. Triples from Dragan Hornatko (Baltimore, Md./Glenelg Country Day School) and Contee closed the margin to two. The Green Terror twice got to within one but a 12-3 run over a four-minute stretch turned a one-point game into a 45-37 lead with 4:12 to play. Four straight points from Wallace closed the deficit to four but that's as close as the hosts would get the rest of the way.

THE INSIDE STORY
Josh Sproul (Princess Anne, Md./Washington Academy) led the Green Terror on the glass with six boards – part of a 37-34 edge for McDaniel.
