Mount Vernon Tournament Produces Thrilling Results

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- The Mount Vernon Holiday Basketball Tournament, now in its 37th season, is one of the longest running sports traditions in the DMV. 

There were two highly competitive semifinal games on Wednesday evening. Here are the recaps.

Game 1: Florida Air Academy 60, Largo 57

On paper, it looks like the Falcons of Florida Air Academy walked all over the Largo Lions, but that's not exactly what happened.

The Lions had control for a majority of this game. Even with a severe height disadvantage, Largo kept attacking the rim. In the second quarter they outscored the Falcons 18-7. Six-foot guard Derrick Colter's (13 points) quickness on the break forced Florida Air to speed up their tempo, causing several turnovers.

Late in the third quarter, Largo was so content with their seven point lead that the team began a stalling tactic, essentially holding onto the ball for just under two minutes.

Alexandria Bank Robber Wanted

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- A man robbed a bank Wednesday afternoon in Alexandria, Va., police said. 

It happened at around 2:27 p.m. at the Virginia Commerce Bank on 5140 Duke Street.

"A man entered the bank, implied he had a weapon and demanded money. The teller relinquished an undisclosed amount of cash and the suspect fled the area on foot. He was last seen heading Westbound on Duke Street. No one was injured," police said in a news release. 

Police describe the suspect as a black man, approximately 5'7" with a medium build. 

He was wearing a red stocking cap with black trim, a black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and dark boots, police said. 

If you know anything about this robbery, call Detective Chris Whelan at 703.746.6884.
