Just when I thought the high school basketball season was over, BAM! A national invitational tournament comes to Georgetown Prep in North Bethesda to determine the best high school basketball team in the entire country. Of course this "national championship" is theoretical because every high school team wasn't invited and the Chinquapin Burrs could have easily made it at least to the final four, easily. But they weren't invited, so they didn't make it.
Oak Hill Academy and Montrose Christian, however, did advance to the finals. The two perennial powerhouses and D-1 ballplayer factories faced off in their second double overtime thriller this season. Montrose, led by Justin Anderson, defeated the Oak Hill Warriors led by Duke-bound Quinn Cook with a score of 71-64. Shout out to kids being genuinely happy about winning (and sad about losing).
