Area Boys Prep Basketball Report for Tuesday, Jan. 15

It was a thriller.

Unable to decide the outcome in regulation, Martin Luther King Charter outlasted KIPP-Booker T. Washington 76-71 in overtime Monday evening.

Markie Swearington paced four Jaguars (16-10) in double figures with 24 points. Derrick Richard scored 19, Sullivan Roche put in 12 and Juan Brown contributed 11 points for M.L. King Charter.

The Jaguars return to action Wednesday at 6 pm at J.F. Kennedy. The Lions (12-13) have lost three straight and will host West St. John Friday at 7 pm.

In an important District 9-5A contest this evening, Jesuit travels to St. Augustine for a 7 pm battle.

The Purple Knights (21-2, 3-0) lead the Catholic League and have won 14 straight games. Included in that streak was a thrilling 53-52 win over the Blue Jays in the title game of the Valero Chalmette Christmas Classic in a non-district game. Jesuit (21-3, 3-1) is coming off of a win over Archbishop Shaw with its only district loss being in overtime to Holy Cross. The Tigers (19-5, 3-1) are tied for second in the league and play at Archbishop Rummel tonight at 7 pm.
