FROSTBURG, Md. — The four best boys' basketball teams in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference finished their seasons Saturday in a warm and crowded gym hours from home. They often do this. After months of dramatic, high-level basketball, their final stop is the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament, a tradition in the mountainous, northwest corner of Maryland for nearly 60 years.
On Saturday night, DeMatha won the event for the 25th time with a 60-51 victory over Paul VI. No. 1 DeMatha (33-5), fresh off winning the Maryland Private School Championship, used a second-half surge to down the Panthers and then gathered for team photos around a trophy for the second time in two weeks.
"Every year is very competitive in this conference," senior guard Justin Moore said as his teammates tried on championship hats and shirts. "This year we didn't do what we wanted to do, but we finished two for three with titles."
