Dialog reporter

ST. GEORGES – Nate Thomas has been around high school basketball long enough to know that sometimes, the shots just won’t be falling. But when you get the chance with the clock running down, you have to trust your shot.

That’s just what the St. Elizabeth senior did on March 1, draining a three-point shot with 5.1 seconds remaining to give his team a 40-39 lead over host and No. 8 seed St. Georges in the second round of the DIAA boys basketball tournament. A last-second attempt from Nah’Shon Hyland bounced off the rim, and ninth-seeded St. Elizabeth had secured its spot in the quarterfinal round. Read more »

Dialog reporter

WILMINGTON – Ber’Nyah Mayo has done much of her damage this season for the St. Elizabeth girls basketball team from the outside, raining down three-point shots on the Vikings’ opponents. But on Feb. 16 against Conrad, the No. 1-ranked team in the state according to 302Sports.com, Mayo went inside, to great effect.

Mayo took a cross-court pass from Arianna Henry and drove into the lane, splitting three defenders and putting up an off-balance scoop shot off the glass for the last two of her 30 points, giving St. Elizabeth a 55-53 win in front of an electric crowd at the St. E Center. The fourth-ranked Vikings grabbed perhaps their most impressive win of the season, while the Red Wolves suffered their first loss to an in-state foe. Read more »
