2018 Mike Grimes, who scored 16 points, hit four three pointers in the first quarter, and this basically set the tone for the rest of the game. Justin Law came off the bench and did more of the same. The 2019 guard, who scored 18 points, shot 4 of 7 from downtown.

FLOWERS DOMINATES INSIDE

St. Andrew’s didn’t really have an answer for Devon Flowers. The Loyola commit, who scored 20 points on 8 of 15 shooting from the field, demonstrated the ability to score with his back to the basket, or while facing up. Flowers was adept at finishing through contact.

BLIGEN, DAVIS GIVE VALIANT EFFORT

Offensively, Chace Davis had a tremendous game for St. Andrew’s. The freshman, who led his team in scoring, recorded 17 points on 6 of 15 shooting from the field. 2019 Heru Bligen did a bit of everything on both ends of the floor. He finished the game with 10 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block.

BACON’S IMPACT

Preston Bacon didn’t need to provide much offense in this game, but found a way to impact the game defensively. The 2019 guard, who defended his position very well, came up with 4 steals to go along with 4 points and 3 assists.

QUICK HITS

  • Millersville commit Justin Nwosu is a really good passer. The sturdily built 6’5 forward handed out a game-high 5 assists to go along with 5 rebounds and 8 points.
  • 2019 Victor MuresanĀ made a really nice post move and scored in the second half. The 6’7 post also showed that he can protect the rim.
  • Potomac School will travel to St. James tomorrow to face the second-seeded Saints. Can they pull off the upset? Some say it’s hard to beat a team 3 times in a row, but that’s what St. James will need to do if they want to advance.
