Poly Win's 2nd Straight State Basketball Championship
Poly Men's Basketball beat Milford Mill for the State Championship title on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at the Xfinity Center in College Park! It was a fast start for the Poly Men’s Varsity basketball team, jumping out to a 21 to 9 lead at the end of the first quarter, but things tightened up quickly. The Millers of Milford Mill came on strong in the second quarter with Poly turning the ball over on missed shots. Poly led 29 to 19 at the half. The third quarter, the same trend continued with the score at the end of quarter 3 being, Poly 41, Milford Mill 33. The fourth quarter saw the Millers close the gap to a 2 point Poly lead, Poly 49, Milford Mill 47. With 17 seconds left, Milford Mill inbounded the ball and drove the length of the court, but the Poly defense stiffened and the Millers never got a shot off, with the ball going out of bounds as time expired. Congratulations to Head coach Sam Brand and his staff, players and managers on winning their second straight MPSSAA State Championship!
