Eleanor Roosevelt closed out a long day of hoops at the University of Maryland’s Xfinity Center with a comfortable fourth quarter. The Raiders had overpowered Broadneck long before the fourth game of the day’s closing minutes, so they soaked in the moment and enjoyed the final few highlights of a dominant season. At the final buzzer, Roosevelt was crowned champions of the Maryland 4A bracket.
And with that, another year of boys’ basketball came to a close. The Maryland state championships were the final postseason events for local boys’ teams, and the Raiders were the Washington area’s final winners. They joined DeMatha, Wilson, Gonzaga, St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes, Flint Hill and Sidwell Friends as this year’s major champions.
