Andrew Mills and Martaz Robinson each scored 16 points and No. 6 New Town High put together a tenacious defensive effort over the final three quarters en route to a 62-42 victory over Pennsylvania’s Allderdice at the Stand Against Violence Showcase at Woodland Hills near Pittsburgh Monday.
Trailing 19-8 after one quarter, the defending Baltimore County champ Titans (11-1 overall) outscored the Pittsburgh school, 54-23, over the last three periods to complete a 2-0 showing at the Martin Luther King holiday weekend event.

The Titans out-rebounded Allderdice, 47-33, led by Mills’ team-high seven. New Town held Allderdice to 15-percent shooting (six-of-40) over the final three quarters.
Robinson, a Delaware State University recruit, handed out six assists. The Titans, who defeated Steel Mills (PA), 76-41, on Saturday, was part of a 6-1 showing by Baltimore schools.
Top-ranked Poly boys and St. Frances girls each won two games. Severn School boys lost its match Sunday.
