B-CC Mounts 4th Quarter Comeback to Defeat Arch-rival Whitman
Heading into the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s game Whitman held a double digit lead and B-CC had absolutely no answer for Viking junior guard Shaq Diboti-Lobe.
Lobe had 26 points through three quarters and the Barons only lead of the game had been 2-0. The Barons pressure defense began to pay off, and Shaq didn’t score the rest of the way. B-CC outscored their arch-rivals 21-5 in the final frame and walked away a 55-50 victor improving to 6-3 on the season. B-CC has more wins then it did all of last season.
Through the first three quarters Whitman guard Shaq Diboti-Lobe put on a show. From the perimeter and with his slashing attack, he was carrying the Vikings offensively. He is a welcome addition to the Vikings who made it to the Maryland 4A state championship game last season, but lost almost its entire rotation to graduation and transfer. Diboti-Lobe has done his part in trying to keep the tradition alive in Bethesda as he has averaged 17.4 PPG and been a highlight factory for the Vikings so far.
The Barons are led this year by senior guard Justin Carter who is averaging 16.2 PPG. Carter is an unselfish player who looks to distribute as well as score. He doesn’t bring a ton of flare to the game but gets the job done, and is a very dependable asset to Baron head coach Sean Tracy. He can score in bunches, and plays with a lot of confidence.
These two will square off again on February 10th at B-CC.
