COLLEGE PARK – The Dunbar Poets came into Saturday's 1A state title game as heavy favorites, but New Town refused to go down without a fight, a fight that lasted until the final possession of the game.
With just 23 seconds remaining and down by two, the Titans had possession of the ball, looking for a good shot opportunity. With the clock winding down, senior guard Keith Wainwright drove an open lane to the basket but was met with some contact and his last second reverse lay-up rolled off the rim. As a scramble for the loose rebound ensued, the buzzer sounded and Dunbar held on for a 54-52 win, their fourth consecutive Class 1A title, and 15th in school history.
