Boys Basketball

McQuaid 82 Aquinas 75

Jermaine Taggart scored 30 points and Kobe Long added 27 as McQuaid fended off a feisty Aquinas team on Dewey Avenue. 

The Knights only briefly had a double digit lead in the second half. Aquinas got as close as two points and were within one possession on multiple occasions, even missing a three pointer that would have tied the game in the third quarter. 

However, Taggart and Long were enough to keep the Irish from fully climbing the hill. Connor Zamiara also made two clutch buckets in the final three minutes to prevent any nail biting. He finished with 14 points. 

Tyler Warner topped AQ with 21 points. Jack Bleier, Jack Scanlon and Steve Mahar were all in double figures. 

McQuaid has won three straight and seven of the last eight. The Knights are now 14-4. 

It was the fourth loss in a row for the Irish and dropped them to 6-12. 

East 73 Leadership 65

The Eagles trailed 36-31 at halftime and by as many as 14 in the second half before mounting their comeback.

Dasani Barley scored 8 points including the go-ahead jumper in the fourth quarter to give East the lead they never gave up.

Dyllon Scott and Chaz Washington combined for 22 points in the second half.

Scott finished with a double-double with 16 points and 10 boards.

Washington ended with a team-high 19 to lead East to their fourth straight win.

Rondell Watson hit six three points and finished with a game-high 23 points for Leadership. Teammates Kennyh Hardeman and Maurice McKinney each scored in double figures for the Lions.

East improves to 18-1 on the season.
