Basketball coaches routinely remind their teams about the strengths of the opponentís best player, but itís not often a coach asks his own player to emulate that opponent. Such is the case at Doherty High where Highlanders coach Jermaine Chavis has strongly urged senior Antonio Jones to take a part of the game of South High superstar Rod Milton. Tuesday night, Jones was the difference, as his 12 second-half points and dominance during a decisive run led the visiting Highlanders to a 61-44 win over the No. 4 Colonels. No. 5 Doherty, which hasnít lost since December and improved to 10-4 overall and 6-0 in Inter-High play, clinched the league championship. South is 12-4, 3-2.
