During the regular season, the City College girls’ defeated the Digital Harbor, but on Thursday night in south Baltimore, the Rams avenged that loss with a huge win in the state Class 2A North Region semiifinals as A’Lexus Harrison, Antwanye Parks and Ke’shara Floyd combined for 45 points for coach Patrick McDonald.

“It was a team effort,” said McDonald.  “You get to this part of the year – what we call the third season – it’s all about a more concentrated effort from everyone.”

Harrison, who led the Rams with 17 points, scored three buckets in the opening quarter to help the Rams take a 17-9 lead, and despite a few late rallies by the Knights, the Rams never relinquished their lead, going wire to wire.

The Rams led by as many as 13 late in the fourth quarter when Parks scored six unanswered points, and from there, it was just a matter of protecting the lead the rest of the way.

McDonald said it was about defense, about limiting your mistakes, and about doing the little things.  

“I think we did that tonight,” added McDonald.

Parks finished with 16 points, and Floyd added 12 for the Rams.

Dyzhaney Burton led the Knights with 13, and Precious Palmer had 10, all of which came in the fourth quarter when she sparked a late rally. The Knights struggled at the free thrwo line, going just 2-for-11.

Two Palmer three-pointers brought the Knights to within eight with 2 minutes left in regulation, but Ja’ida Scarborough answered for the Rams to keep the Knights at bay.
