Rams get the win behind DeAndre Kelly's 32 points

The boys basketball team (3-17) fell to the Rockville Rams (7-12) by a score of 64-55 on Tuesday, on Feb. 8. The Blazers were unable to contain Rockville's 6'6" forward DeAndre Kelly, who finished with 32 on the night. Kelly, who averages 19.2 ppg for the Rams, was unstoppable in the post and knocked down open looks from deep.

A bright spot for the Blazers was their offense. Blair scored more points on Rockville than any team has all season, due in large part to junior Tucker Canary's fearless drives to the cup and senior Charles Ruffin's ability to get loose on fast breaks. Canary scored 14 in the loss while Ruffin chipped in with 13.

Check the highlights, including a monster block at :50, a Kelly dunk at 2:30, and junior Rick Narcisse getting up to cap an opposing player's layup attempt at 2:14.

After losing to Rockville, the Blazers hosted B-CC on Friday, falling 63-44 and extending their losing streak to 13. Blair was back in action tonight, and beat the Northwest Jaguars.
