Scottie Reynolds of Herndon High took a hook-and-ladder pass from Silver Spring’s Dante Cunningham, weaved between a melange of Pitt defenders, and convereted the bucket to give Villanova its first Final Four berth since the Wildcats won it all in 1985:
Dwayne Anderson of Silver Spring, Md. led ‘nova scorers with 17, Reynolds contributed 15, Cunningham 14 (a D.C. area trio). For the valiant losers, Friendly High product Sam Young led the charge with 28 points.
