For pure entertainment, there was nothing better for Dorsey fans on Wednesday night than watching Lafayette Dorsey score a career-high 37 points and Tommie Groce deliver four crowd-pleasing dunks in a 90-76 victory over rival Crenshaw in a Coliseum League game for first place.

Dorsey fans were dancing in the bleachers.

"It was a good day," Dorsey said. "Everything was dropping. We had everybody dancing. Everytime we play Crenshaw, it's a whole different level of intensity."

Groce is probably the best dunker in the City Section. He finished with 18 points. He had a tremendous dunk in which he drove the baseline and threw it down one handed.

Dorsey is 15-6 overall and 4-0 in league and will get stronger after 6-foot-8 transfer Leonard Murray was declared eligible. He'll give the Dons some badly needed size.

Crenshaw (11-8, 2-1) never gave up and closed to within 82-76 with 51 seconds left on a three-point play by Lamar Harris. Harris, Ryan Campbell and Chris Kendrick each finished with 13 points.
