This was the 3rd game in the first annual Catholic Invitational that invited teams from around the state and even from out of state. This game matched up Pontiac Notre Dame Prep and Flint Powers Catholic. The game was one-sided right from the opening tip as Notre Dame Prep shared the ball extremely well and were very efficient. They also pressured Flint Powers constantly and forced nearly every shot to be contested. At half, Notre Dame Prep led 39-14 and the 2nd half was not any different as they cruised to a big victory. Below are a few standouts from the game:

He finished with 15 points. 4 rebounds, 3 steals, 1 block and 7 assists and 0 turnovers while also shooting above 50% from the field. Derrickson just picked up his 2nd offer from Concordia University (NAIA).
