SMITH  TOWSON — The 2017-18 season has certainly been a historic ride for the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Barons varsity girls basketball team. The Barons advanced to the state semifinals for the first time in school history, and during the first half against the defending state champion Catonsville Comets, it looked like this playoff ride would continue.

Then Catonsville’s Jasmine Dickey took the game into her own hands.

Behind Dickey’s dominant second half, Catonsville stormed back in the second half, and defeated B-CC 63-51.

PHOTO BY DAVID WOLFE  BURTONSVILLE — The defending state champion Catonsville Comets varsity girls basketball team strode into the Panthers Den Saturday and emerged as the 4A North Regional champions after throttling the Paint Branch Panthers, 78-42.

The staunch Comet defense proved to be too much for the Panthers to handle. Catonsville neutralized Paint Branch center Amele Ngwafang, throwing the senior off of her game and forcing her into foul trouble. Even though the Radford University commit still led her team with 14 points, most of those points were earned at the free throw line.

Meanwhile, Catonsville senior guard and University of Delaware commit Jasmine Dickey ran roughshod over the Panthers, creating turnovers and landing easy layups nearly every time she dashed down the court. Dickey led all scorers with 26 points and in the process, entered the Maryland state history books as she registered her 2000th high school career point.

“I really didn’t know,” said Dickey of her achievement. “It feels great because I know not a lot of people get it.”

Meyers had uncharacteristically fouled out of the game with under two minutes to go and was forced to watch from the sidelines as the Vikings tried to rally from a four-point deficit and claim their second state title in a row.

It wasn’t meant to be, however. Whitman senior guard Olivia Meyers’ last-second three-point attempt bounced off the backboard and Catonsville held on to win, 49-46.
