40 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, February 3 - February 9, 1995 Angle Moon photo Cape's Lavar Hall looks for room under the basket and against a Poly Tech Panther defend- er during Tuesday night's game in the Cape gym. Cape holds off Panthers to preserve perfect conference mark Continued from page 38 Peden commented of one such player, the sophomore whose six points were perhaps the biggest of the contest. Dale Dunning scored only two, but added big rebounds and some even bigger blocked shots. Cape faces Sussex Tech on the road Friday night in a rematch of a 61-56 Cape win earlier in the sea- son. Tech is still in the conference hunt, as are some other talented teams the Vikings have yet to play. One coming attraction: Cae- sar Rodney Rider and future Maryland Terrapin Laron Profit has come on strong of late, scor- ing a combined 85 points in two games last Friday and Tuesday. Slam Dunk Tourney winner now nation's top ranked team The nation's number one high school basketball team is present "Slam Dunk to theBeach" Na- tional Holiday Basketball Invita- tional champion St. Augustine of New Orleans, according to "USA TODAY" and national high school beat reporter Dave Krider of LaPort, In. St. Augustine captured the pres- tigious title with a 79-60 win over previously unbeaten St. Raymond of Bronx, N.Y. Starting out 1 lth in pre-season polls by Street and Smith and "USA TODAY", they have risen at a steady pace to reach the number one slot. Bernard Griffith has led the Pur- ple Knights to a 26-1 mid-season record and a 25-game winning streak. His two standout players, senior Maurice Robertson and ju- nior Eugene Edgerson, are both averaging 17 points per game, leading the starting five who all average in double figures. "It's a great honor for us ... and the state of Louisiana. Our rank- ing and success is due mostly to winning the "Slam Dunk to the Beach" National Holiday Basket- ball Invitational Championship. It is indeed the national tournament that is clearly above all others. Winning the number one tourna- ment in the nation goes hand-in- hand with us being selected as the top team in the nation." With five regular season games remaining, plus another possible 10 in the playoffs, St. Augustine still has a tough grind ahead in hopes of winning a national cham- pionship.
