WASHINGTON – Nate Watson kept the Bishop O’Connell Knights within striking distance of one of the best teams in the WCAC for a half, and then his guards took over and finished to hold off the Gonzaga Eagles 69-65 for the team’s sixth consecutive victory on Wednesday.

“It feels great,” Watson said. “We wanted to beat the top WCAC teams in the league and this win means a lot to us.  I think we learned today how to play with effort; today was about effort.”

HAMPTON, VA - Nike opened the 2015 edition of its Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) at the Boo Williams Sportsplex last weekend, and plenty of talent from the DMV was on display.

Here are a few notes from the weekend’s action:

By MARCUS HELTON

WASHINGTON, DC — After coming out on the wrong end of a one-sided third quarter, the Gonzaga Purple Eagles found themselves in an unenviable 10-point hole with 8 minutes remaining in Thursday’s Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship game at American University.
