In the first week of public school basketball, we had one of the most different matchups of the early season so far. Richmond vs. Hampton Roads, public vs. private as Bishop Sullivan travelled from Virginia Beach to play against Richmond public power John Marshall.
It was a barn burner from the beginning, as Bishop Sullivan jumped out the gates on fire going 8-for-11 from the field in the first quarter, allowing them to jump out to a 23-15 lead after one. The Justices of John Marshall woke up in the second quarter, but the Crusaders continued to shoot the basketball extremely well as they headed into the half up 46-41.
The third quarter was the turning point, as John Marshall came out with a lot of energy on the defensive
