Cunningham leads DuVal over Bowie
DuVal defeated Bowie in a thriller 62-57 last Tuesday. DuVal’s Mike Cunningham simply could not be stopped. Cunningham rattled off 31 points, had one assist, grabbed two steals, and snatched nine rebounds. Paris Jones also had 11 points to give the Tigers their third win of the season. It was a tough defensive effort to stop one of the best big men in the league by holding Bowie’s Jalen Robinson to only 14 points.
Parkdale keeps victory streak going
Parkdale knocked off Laurel 85-78, achieving its sixth-straight win of the season. Kaine Wilson led the Panthers in scoring with 26 points as well as hitting 12 free-throw attempts. Cameron Thurston dropped 15 points as well. Parkdale still looks to be the most consistent team in the division.
