In a rematch of last season's Class AAA state-title game, Archbishop Carroll cruised past Imhotep Charter, 53-37, Wednesday night at Archbishop Ryan to clinch District 12's third seed in next week's state boys' basketball playoffs.
Junior forward Derrick Jones led the way with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Ernest Aflakpui added 14 rebounds and six points. Austin Tilghman dished out seven assists and had seven points.
Jaekwon Carlyle and Basil Thompson each had eight points for Imhotep.
Both teams will open the state playoffs on March 7. Carroll awaits the runner-up from District 3. Imhotep, the reigning state champ, awaits District 3's champion.
