Dunbar vs. New Town

Highlights from Dunbar's 54-52 win over New Town in the Maryland Class 1A state championship game at Comcast Center on March 16, 2013. Includes postgame press conference segments from Dunbar coach Cyrus Jones and Dunbar guards Keandre Gibson and Daxter Miles.


1A: Dunbar Holds Off New Town



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.

MPSSAA State Semifinals: 1A Recap



COLLEGE PARK – The depth and size of Dunbar high proved to be too much to handle for the Washington Jaguars as they fell 70-41 in their first semi-final appearance since 1975.

Dunbar’s game in the paint proved to be too much for their opponent right out of the gate as they built a double-digit lead by the end of the first quarter and were up 16 at halftime. The only trouble that the Poets ran into in the first half was foul trouble, as they played right in to Washington’s hand by playing too aggressive and sending them to the foul line.

“We were so aggressive that we trying to prevent them from scoring so much, and get into transition so fast that we ended up making some stupid fouls,” Dunbar senior guard Daxter Miles said of the foul-heavy first half.
