COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Carlton Bragg scored 22 points and top-ranked Cleveland Villa Angela-St. Joseph dominated inside to beat Columbus Eastmoor Academy, 62-34, in a Division III state semifinal on Thursday.

The Vikings (22-4) - who start three Division I signees - go for their sixth state title on Saturday at Value City Arena.

Bragg, the 6-foot-10 AP player of the year in Division IV headed for Kansas, owned the inside along with 6-8 second-team All-Ohioan Dererk Pardon, who is going to Northwestern.

Jalon Lewis scored 12 to lead Eastmoor (17-12), which made a surprise run to its first state tournament with two freshmen starting.

VASJ won the board battle 43-21 and outscored the Warriors 46-16 in the paint.

The Vikings took control with a 15-2 blitz to close the half.
