Eliminated from the Baltimore City Division I championship picture, Digital Harbor High girls’ basketball team had the key to the final piece of the puzzle Friday afternoon. A victory over Dunbar would knock the Poets out of contention. 

Playing on their Senior Day, the Rams handled the role of spoiler, defeating the Poets, 52-48, in south Baltimore. Sophomore forward A’Lexus Harrison scored 18 point and Keshara Floyd and Deja Carroll each added 10.

The loss left the Poets at 8-2 in Division I tied with Western and City College, which lost to Poly Friday evening. Western advances to the finals against Poly based on having a better regular season record against MPSSAA member schools. 

Poly and Western will meet Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. at Coppin State University’s Physical Education Center for the city Division I title. Southside Academy and Southwestern will play for the Division II crown at 5 p.m.

Michelle Wright led all scorers with 27 points for Dunbar, which should be a top two seed for the Class 1A South Region playoffs. Digital Harbor will find out its place in the 2A North Region Sunday morning at the state draw. The Rams are looking for a third straight state Final Four trip to UMBC.
