Mother Nature continued to wreak havoc on basketball schedules last week, forcing cancellations throughout the Washington area.

The games that did happen provided plenty of drama. Five of the top 20 teams lost, many of them to unranked opponents. 

In the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference, Bishop McNamara held on for a two-point win over O’Connell. In Maryland, St. Charles lost two tight games to Southern Maryland Athletic Conference opponents. In Virginia, Flint Hill came up short against another state private school power.

Most teams in the area only have a week or two remaining before postseason play begins. All of the recent postponements mean the home stretch of the season will be jampacked with action.
