Michael Bradley (pictured right) scored 10 points as No. 4 Edmondson posted a 64-38 decision over Mervo in a Baltimore City Division I match in west Baltimore. The Red Storm honored their senior class featuring Bradley, Michael Brock Terrell Curbean, Brian Ellison, Keaton Ottey, Raynair Pratcher, Rodney Pratcher and Kavon Pyatt.
Pyatt, a 6-foot-3 guard and Edmondson’s leading scorer, didn’t play Tuesday due to a hand injury. It didn’t matter as the defending city league champ Red Storm (14-1 overall) built a 38-11 halftime advantage, en route to clearing its final hurdle to a showdown with No. 1 Patterson Friday evening at Coppin State University.
The Red Storm (6-0) and Patterson (8-0) are both unbeaten in Division I play. The Clippers (17-1 overall) have clinched a spot in the Division I championship game, Feb. 22 at Morgan State University.
