WILMINGTON – St. Mark’s boys basketball team, with memories of last week’s five-overtime loss to Salesianum fresh in its mind, needed to keep its focus on the task at hand Feb. 13. That was a late-afternoon tilt at Wilmington Charter, which entered the contest at 7-10.

MILLTOWN – Within the span of a minute, St. Mark’s had seen its 37-36 lead over Caesar Rodney turn into a 42-37 deficit with less than two minutes left in regulation.
