After finishing their league game against Holy Spirit, the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Eagles rushed across town to play Sacred Heart in the finals of the St. Philomene's basketball tournament.
Sacred Heart has a couple of fairly skilled backcourt players, but no size. The Eagles ran out to a 9 to 4 first quarter lead on the strength of 7 points from Joe and never looked back. The bench got a chance to play a lot of minutes.
The Eagles won the game by the score of 40 to 26 and the championship of the tournament. The score box is here and the season game log is here.
This is the first game this year that Jack has failed to score. He was 0 for 2 from the field. Jack added 2 steals and 2 rebounds. He also turned the ball over twice. After playing three games in about 20 hours, Jack was a little banged up (sore heel) and wore down. Typical of when he has an off performance, Jack was very unhappy...
In the last fifteen days, the Eagles have played 10 games. Over the next four weeks, they only have 4 league games scheduled until the JV Championship Tournament starts on February 22.
