BASKETBALL: Annapolis Boys Grab County Title

The Panthers handed Arundel its only loss in the county this season.

The Annapolis High boys basketball team won the county title Wednesday night, securing a 51-49 win over Arundel as time expired. 

It was the first loss against a county foe for Arundel all year. The Wildcats had not lost to a team from Anne Arundel County since a similar buzzer-beater loss to Old Mill last year. 

The Capital  reported that Juan Brown stole the ball in the waning seconds and ran the length of the floor to drain a layup right at the buzzer. 

Both Annapolis and Arundel will now prepare for the MPSSAA playoffs. Annapolis is the No. 4 seed in the Class 3A East bracket, and secured a first-round bye. The Panthers will face the winner of the game between Howard and Northeast. 

Arundel is the No. 2 seed in the Class 4A East region and will face the winner of the game between Chesapeake and Leonardtown.
