If you are looking for a team to challenge St. Thomas More and University Lab for the Division II boys state championship, look no further than De La Salle.

The Cavaliers finished off an unbeaten season in District 10-3A with a convincing 94-68 win at Lutcher Tuesday night.

Once again, leading scorer Rodney Munson led the charge for De La Salle. The gifted sophomore tallied 20 points to pace a balanced attack.

The win was the 12th straight for De La Salle and the second over Lutcher, whom the Cavs whipped 110-85 uptown on Jan. 27.

De La Salle, which entered the week third in the Division II power rankings behind St. Thomas More and University Lab, closes out its regular season at home against Karr Thursday night at 7 p.m.

St. Thomas More edged De La Salle 64-63 in the Sunkist Shootout at St. Thoma More on Dec. 30.

Make it 21 straight wins for Archbishop Hannan.

Norris Williams made all four free throw attempts in the final minute to lift the Hawks to a hard-earned 58-54 victory over Episcopal in a battle of teams that figure to be high seeds and could see each other in the Division III state playoffs.

Hannan took a 15-8 lead after one quarter but the Knights rallied, outscoring the Hawks 17-8 in the second frame to take a 25-23 halftime lead. Hannan rebounded, outscoring Episcopal 19-13 in the third quarter to grab a 42-38 lead going to the final stanza.

Williams led the Hawks with 20 points, Shawn Beattie had 13 and Brooks Murrell added 10. Cameron Dumas topped Episcopal (27-6) with 22 points while Kade Edenfield added 12.

Archbishop Hannan entered play fourth in the Division III power rankings while Episcopal is No. 5. Dunham is No. 1 with Country Day second and Riverside third in what will be a loaded top half of the bracket.

The Hawks (27-2) remain unbeaten at home on the season. They will travel to Springfield Thursday at 7 p.m. for their final regular season contest. Episcopal ends its regular season at home Friday night against Lee Magnet School at 7 p.m.
