ODDS & ENDS FROM TUESDAY NIGHT
*** Senior Taylor Wright scored 15 points and pulled down a career-best 14 rebounds in Episcopal Academy's 67-58 victory over Bishop Shanahan. Wright, known earlier in his career as an outside shooter, had 10 of those rebounds before halftime. Also an exceptional pitcher, Wright is in the midst of his best season.
*** Upper Darby shot 35 percent in the first half and 70 percent in the second half. What's more stunning? The Royals shot at an 80-percent clip (8-for-10) in the fourth quarter, beating Haverford, 56-40. (For more on this game, check out Wednesday's Daily Times.)
*** Sun Valley's Bill Hudson made more free throws (12-for-17) than Academy Park attempted (5-for-11 as a team), in the Vanguards' 69-61 victory. Sun Valley was 23-for-31 as a team.
*** Chester's Lamon Church (nine) and DaQuann Walker (eight) combined for 17 of the Clippers' 21 fourth-quarter points during their 71-64 win over Reading. Having faced two of the perennial Pa. powerhouses in the last week - JP McCaskey and Reading - the Clippers are 5-0.
*** All three of the shots knocked down by Springfield's Dave Carpenter were beyond the arc in the Cougars' 62-50 takedown of Marple Newtown. He made more 3-pointers than the Tigers did as a team.
*** Cardinal O'Hara shot 7-for-8 from the free-throw line ... none more important than Sean Mayo's two with two seconds to go in the Lions' come-from-behind, 65-64 win over Spring-Ford.
