SANDY SPRING – With just under three minutes left and the Sherwood boys basketball team holding a 14-point lead against Good Counsel Tuesday, Warriors junior guard Davis Long brandished the fatal blow to the Falcons.

He buried his fifth three-pointer of the game, en route to game high 34 points and a 65-44 triumph on opening night.

“You know, we wanted to come out strong give our home fans something to be happy about,” said Long. “And like I said, my teammates kept believing in me, kept trusting in me, kept finding me, kept giving me the ball, and it was a great overall team effort.”


Boy cagers face challenges as hoop season begins

Seneca Valley came within a game of playing for a Maryland 3A state title last season but the Germantown public school has one of the county’s top returning players in senior guard Brandon Simpson.
A four-year varsity performer, Simpson averaged 13 points per game last season in leading the Screaming Eagles to a 3A state semifinal appearance.
Quince Orchard boasts perhaps the county’s top returning backcourt in seniors Johnny Fierstein and Matt Kelly who combined to average nearly 40 points per game last season.

The 6-foot-2 guard had to beat out Churchill senior Jonathan Wilson and St. Andrew’s junior Dominic Doyle in order to take home the first place trophy.

“It feels good,” said Long. “I put a lot of practice and time into this competition because it means a lot.”

The skills competition featured three players from Montgomery County all vying for the top prize.

“It was very friendly but at the same time it was competitive,” said Long. “Everyone was trying to win.”
