It was a rough start to the week for two of the best teams in the D.C. area as DeMatha and Paul VI fell to out-of-town opponents.
In a nationally televised matchup with Indiana’s La Lumiere, the Stags couldn’t assert the control they’ve shown throughout conference play and lost, 73-50. Paul VI had a closer game but still fell to Shadow Mountain, 45-41. Both teams bounced back from the defeats, winning out the rest of the week. The Stags and the Panthers will meet Tuesday night in the first No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup of the year.
