In their first state championship game in 20 years, the Spotswood boys never led, as Brunswick won their third straight state championship 56-31 in the Group AA Division 3 title game Saturday at the Siegel Center.

Isreal Stith scored 11 of his 15 points in the first quarter, including 3 three pointers to lead Brunswick to the three-peat in their seventh straight state title game appearance.

Brandan Stith helped pace the Bulldogs with 15 points of his own along with 7 rebounds. Stephen Vassor added 12 points and 8 rebounds.

Spotswood was outscored in the paint 32-16 and outrebounded 37-22. The Blazers shot 27.1% from the floor and had no answer for the size and athleticism of Brunswick.

Tucker McCoy was the only Spotswood player in double figures with 11 points. Hyrum Weiler chipped in 9 points as the only other Blazer to score more than 5 points.

The Blazers used an 8-0 run over the end of the second quarter and the beginning of the third quarter to cut the gap to 10 in the second half, but Brunswick only allowed 9 more points the entire game, cruising to a 25 point win.

Spotswood shot just 8 free throws in the contest, making only 2 shots from the line. Brunswick was 13-22 from the free throw line.

Spotswood last won a state title in 1993, that was also the last time the Blazers made it to the state championship game.

This is Brunswick's sixth state championship in program history.
