Results are in from the first round of state playoff. Before I go further though, I have to admit I made an error stating that Mike Watkins and MCS were done for the season. With District 12's almost impossible to understand format, I thought they were done for the year, only to find out they were still the #1 seed out of D12. So with out any further wait:
Shep Garner - Roman Catholic won by 10 against a very well coached and very senior laden Oxford team (#9 seed from District 1) from Chester county. Shep finished with 9pts and 4 steals. Oxford, with their experience tried to slow down the game as much as possible, but Roman was just to talented.
Next Game - Roman Cath. vs. Lower Merion (5 seed District 1) - 3/12 @ Archbishop Ryan, Philadelphia
Mike Watkins - MCS dominated this game from start to finish and Delco Christian (who usually is a very tough and disciplined team) just had no answer for Watkins and Jr. teammate Samir Doughty (finished with 45 pts.) Watkins killed it inside finishing with 23 pts and16 rebounds.
Next Game - MCS vs. Sullivan County (2 seed District 4) - 3/11 @ Parkland High School, Allentown
Isaiah Washington - Williamsport finished 12-12, lost in the District 2/4 playoff game, and failed to advance to states.
