Jaylon Breckenridge scored a career-best 19 points and had four steals Monday night as Woodrow Wilson rallied for a 75-68 boys basketball victory against Capital.
Nequan Carrington added 17 points and eight rebounds for the Flying Eagles (13-3), who trailed by seven points with 6:39 left in the third quarter before coming back.
The victory perhaps cleared a path for Woodrow to play Class AAA No. 2 South Charleston on Saturday night in the Mountain State Athletic Conference championship game.
The Flying Eagles are 4-0 in the MSAC East with regular-season games left against Riverside and Ripley. George Washington is 5-1 and has finished its East division games.
MSAC commissioner Fred Aldridge said Monday night that Woodrow is attempting to reschedule its snowed-out game versus Riverside sometime before Saturday's MSAC Night of Champions at the SC Community Center.
An Eagles victory in that game would clinch the East crown.
However, if the two teams can't work out a suitable date, Aldridge may be forced to declare Woodrow the East champ by virtue of its regular-season win against GW.
Carrington Morris (26 points, eight rebounds) kept Capital afloat much of the way Monday. He scored 13 points in the second quarter alone, helping the Cougars take a 41-39 lead at the break.
Miguel Bays had 14 points for Capital (10-6), which entered the game tied for No. 8 in the Class AAA poll, four spots behind Woodrow. Dai Dai Fortune scored a dozen points for the Eagles.
George Washington 77, Hurricane 72:
Jon Elmore poured in 35 points as visiting George Washington overcame a seven-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Anthony Dean added 19 points for the Class AAA No. 7 Patriots (15-4).
J.T. Rogoszewski led Hurricane (14-6) with 26 points while Ace Estep added 12, Garrett DeFries 11, and Trey Dawson 10.
Poca 54, Clay 36:
Noah Frampton scored 13 points as visiting Poca raced out to a 51-19 lead and cruised to its 15th straight victory. Elijah Cuffee and Matt Chandler each contributed 12 points for the Class AA No. 2 Dots (17-1) and Luke Frampton tossed in 11.
Eric McGlothlin and Noah Taylor each scored seven points to lead Clay County (6-10).
