Jesse Morgan leads Olney in scoring and struck for 18 points in a Public League basketball game against visiting Washington yesterday. But his best work may have been a lonely assist.

Morgan's pass to Kadeem Patterson with 2 seconds left resulted in a layup by Patterson and the Trojans escaped with a 68-66 victory.

Patterson's layup capped a 26-19 rally by Olney in the final quarter. Patterson contributed 8 of his 13 points down the stretch and Terrance Bennett chipped in with 7 of his 19 points in the final quarter.
