Only Loch Raven Left Standing In Girls B-Ball Tourney

Play continues in the MPSSAA girls basketball state championship tournaments on Wednesday.

Three local schools had girl's teams take the court for the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association basketball championship tournament. After two rounds of play, only one of those teams remains.

The Loch Raven Raiders, who won 62-59 in their home contest against Edmondson/Westside Monday night, will play again on Wednesday night when the third round of the tournament begins, according to the MPSSAA website. Loch Raven (No. 4) travels to Randallstown for third round play; if Loch Raven wins, they'll take on the winner of a game between Owings Mills (No. 2) and Chesapeake (No. 3) this weekend.

Parkville High School's Knights made it to the second round of the tournament with an upset victory over Towson this past weekend, but lost Monday night when they travelled to Digital Harbor (No. 4). The Knights (No. 12) were outgunned, losing the game 85-10, according to the MPSSAA website.

Overlea High lost a first-round contest to Pikesville.

Play in the boys tournament begins this afternoon; Parkville and Overlea each have first-round games while Loch Raven has earned a bye.
