Titans banish Phantoms, inch closer to state championship

Despite being one of five teams to beat T.C. Williams during the regular season, Phoebus couldn’t stop the Titans from moving to the Virginia AAA State tournament semifinals. 
    
The 21-9 Phantoms fell 58-51 in the first round of the tournament, sending the 25-5 Titans, ranked 13th in the state by CBS Sports, to face L.C. Bird at the Virginia Commonwealth University’s Siegel Center in Richmond. 
    
Although a late game resurgence nearly tipped the game in Phoebus’ favor, T.C.’s penchant for slamming the door shut on opponents in the fourth quarter emerged yet again. They made good on a non-conference 48-41 loss to the Phantoms in January and sent Phoebus packing early. 
    
The Titans are now a single game away from a chance at a state championship. To get that far, they’ll have to beat the 24-3 Lloyd C. Bird Skyhawks, ranked 17th in the state, on March 9.
