BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s varsity basketball teams got swept by Wicomico in home and road games on Tuesday with the boys getting routed by the Indians, 71-45, and the girls losing another tough one, 61-59, in overtime.

The Decatur boys continued their season-long penchant for winning one and losing one with a 71-45 loss to Wicomico on the road on Tuesday. Josh King and Drakar Purnell each scored 13 points in the loss, while Larry Ennis led WiHi with 14. The loss to Wicomico on Tuesday came on the heels of a 66-64 win over Mardela last Thursday and continued a trend for the Seahawks this season.
