After two days of prep school basketball, the Catholic School Showcase began as part of Day 3 of the BasketBull Hoops Fest at Holyoke Community College in Holyoke, Mass.
Holy Cross (N.Y.) 64, St. Joseph's (Mass.) 48
The game was close through three quarters, but in the fourth quarter, the Knights began to pull away. The defensive pressure was key for Holy Cross, holding St. Joseph's to only four points in the final eight minutes. Akil Spruil led the Knights with 20 points. Ryan Wilson and Terrell Williams each chipped in 10. Michael Carpenter led the Crusaders with 20 points, including three 3-pointers in the second half Taverick Roberson held his own against the Holy Cross backcourt, scoring 15 points.
St. Theresa's (CAN) 39, Bishop Hendricken (R.I.) 36
A close game at half tied at 26 became a defensive struggle in the last 16 minutes. St. Theresa's 13 second half points were good enough to come out on top of the Rhode Island power Bishop Hendricken. Jedson Tavernier was the only member for St. Theresa's to score in double figures with 13 points. Will Parmlee led Hendricken with 10 points. St. Theresa's is back in action against Springfield Cathedral on Sunday at 1:45.
Springfield Cathedral 67 (Mass), Holy Name 34
Cathedral's defense gave the Panthers an early lead, taking a 19-5 advantage after one. Cathedral didn't look back from there. The Panthers, led by ball pressure from guards Darrick Boyd and Lou Garcia forced multiple Holy Name turnovers. Cathedral also had the advantage on the inside, controlling the boards on each end. Boyd had 12 points to lead Cathedral, while Garcia added 10. Dan Kegbeh had 10 for Holy Name.
Bishop Kearney (N.Y.) 50, Saint Peter's Prep (N.J.) 49
Antwoine Anderson drove to the basket and got fouled with 0.4 seconds remaining trailing 49-48 to Saint Peter's Prep out of New Jersey. The senior point guard, gaining interest from mid major Division I programs, calmly sank both free throws t give Bishop Kearney a 50-49 win in the final game of Day 3. Kearney held Saint Peter's to only nine fourth quarter points. Thomas Bryant, one of the top sophomores in the nation, had 13 points to lead Bishop Kearney. Saint Peter's bound Trevis Wyche had 15 points for Saint Peter's Prep.
