Miles, Yellow Jackets sting Oxon Hill 22 Feb 2016 Written by Sean Farrell, Photo by Daniel Kucin Jr. Isaiah Miles DKOXON HILL – The Gwynn Park Yellow Jackets stung Oxon Hill and the area’s leading scorer Shawn Moss, 67-54 on Feb. 18. Isaiah Miles led the way for Gwynn Park, scoring 21 points. However, Miles had some help from his supporting cast. Aaron Parker scored eight points and grabbed 10 rebounds, while Justin Faison added 17 points, including nine points from beyond the arc. “I think we played pretty well, but we could’ve played better transition defense,” Parker said. “We gave up a lot of points, but we keyed in on Moss and I think we got him out the game for the most part.” The match was close throughout the first half as both teams were deadlocked at 17 after one quarter of play. Moss led the way for Oxon Hill by scoring 12 points, but then the star guard got into foul trouble. Miles continued to dominate in the paint for Gwynn Park by scoring 13 points in the first half. “The team needed me to post up more and get easy inside buckets and that’s what I did today,” Miles said. “I feel as a team they wanted to get me open, so when they wanted to make space for me they got me open and I just capitalized on it. “Coach (Michael) Glick drew up a good game plan and wanted to shut (Moss) down and make somebody else beat us and nobody could. Moving forward, we just want to win states. We just have to take it one game at a time and just get better each game.” Gwynn Park also added 17 points in the second quarter and went into the half up three, 34-31. In the second half, Oxon Hill kept up with the Yellow Jackets, but still couldn’t crack into the three-point deficit heading into the fourth as they trailed 47-44. In the final quarter, Gwynn Park took off. The Yellow Jackets swarmed Oxon Hill defensively in the final quarter and exploded for 20 points to put the game away for good. Oxon Hill was constantly pressured into taking bad shots and committed a handful of turnovers. The Clippers only managed to score 10 points in the final frame. Moss finished with just one basket in the second half, by the way of a three-pointer in the final minutes. “I was very proud of CJ Miller. I thought his defense on Moss was outstanding,” Glick said. “I was really proud of how we executed our game plan.”

Aaron Parker helps Gwynn Park hang tough to edge Central and stay perfect

The Yellow Jackets’ road game at Central was tied with less than three minutes left in the fourth quarter, and Parker recognized drastic measures were necessary. No. 7 Gwynn Park had arrived with a perfect record, but everything from the whistles that made the visitors throw up their hands to the barrage of three-pointers the Falcons were pouring in seemed to foreshadow an upset.

As he hovered near the rim, Parker wasn’t having it. He switched the basketball to his left hand underneath the basket and whipped in a layup to take the final lead of a gutsy, 79-75 win on Friday night in Capitol Heights.

“I don’t usually make it, but I just went for it,” Parker said. “I knew we was going to win then. I knew it was over.”

Parker took over in the second half, bulling his way into the paint and dropping 16 of his 28 points in the third quarter of the Prince George’s County 3A/2A/1A conference

During a back-and-forth first quarter, Gwynn Park senior guard Marlon White started hot. He drained three three-pointers and scored 10 of his 15 points in the first eight minutes.

Gwynn Park (16-0, 9-0 Prince George’s 3A/2A/1A) settled down and controlled the game for much of the second quarter, but Central ended the half on a 7-0 run to tie the game at 36 heading into halftime. That surge was highlighted by a deep three from senor Daquan Simmons (16 points).

Central (10-3, 6-3) took the lead late in the third quarter behind back-to-back threes from junior Trent Dixon, one of the Falcons’ brainy players whom Coach Lawrence Pugh said he trusts to take smart shots. Dixon finished with 16 points and drew dances from his home stands with his accuracy.

“We did a good job of getting the crowd involved,” Dixon said. “They just fought back.”

Junior Javani Brown broke away in transition to lead Central with 17 points. His last drive brought the Falcons within a bucket of tying the game for the tenth time, but Parker answered with another hesitation move at the rim.

After the game, Parker was pumping his fist, and Gwynn Park Coach Mike Glick could finally relax.

“I just think this is the best basketball county in the United States, and I think we’ve got the best public basketball in the state of Maryland,” Glick said. “This typifies how good the public schools are. Every game’s a battle.”
