DeMatha dominates, wins '05 title

By Travis SawchikThe Sun News

Star of the game | Nigel Munson finished with a team-high 23 points and eight assists to lead DeMatha to its fourth Beach Ball Classic title. Those four titles tie Archbishop Molloy for the most in the tournament's 25-year history.

Turning point | After the break, Munson scored the first seven points of the second half to give DeMatha momentum and an 11-point lead. That lead mushroomed to 20 when he hit a 3-pointer with 7:39 to play.


Game summary | DeMatha guards Munson and Austin Freeman (20 points, 11 rebounds) were simply to quick and too skilled for Mitchell, USA Today's No. 9 team in its South regional rankings. DeMatha, ranked by USA Today as the No. 10 team in the country, led by as many as 25 points in the second half. DeMatha knocked off Martin Luther King (Calif.), Lakota East (Ohio) and Ridgeway (Tenn.), which lost in the championship game to St. Mary's (N.Y.) last season, to meet Mitchell. For Mitchell, Thaddeus Young scored a game-high 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

DeMatha's Austin Freeman contains No. 5 Paul VI Catholic standout Danny Summer and scores 21 points as the top-ranked Stags win, 79-71.

It was not guard Austin Freeman's 21 points, scored by efficiently making 9 of 16 shots. It was not the five rebounds or the four assists, the heady plays or good decisions. When DeMatha Coach Mike Jones praised his star junior in the locker room last night following the top-ranked Stags' latest victory, the subject was Freeman's defense

In the unusual move of a coach giving his best player a tough defensive assignment, Freeman responded by leading the effort to contain Paul VI Catholic standout Danny Sumner. Sumner scored five points in the first three quarters, and the visiting Stags went on to a 79-71 victory over the fifth-ranked Panthers before a standing-room-only crowd of 1,300 in Fairfax to all but clinch first place in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference regular season.
