A three-week absence wasn’t enough to stop St. Edward from continuing its undefeated season. Friday night, the Eagles defeated St. Ignatius 84-76 in a game where they never trailed thanks to elite performances from Michael BovaMichaelBova6'2" | SGSt. Edward | 2022StateOH and Shane MacallaShaneMacalla6'0" | SGSt. Edward | 2021StateOH. Both guards made things difficult for the Wildcats throughout the night, as they had an answer for nearly all scoring runs that put them within striking distance.

The Eagle lead got down to three points midway through the fourth quarter, but that would be as close as Henry RaynorHenryRaynor6'7" | PFSt. Ignatius | 2021StateOH and his team got to making a comeback. Below are a few players that stood out during Friday night’s rivalry game.

No player seemed more clutch than the stellar play from Bova. He poured in 13 points alone in the fourth quarter, including making 9-of-11 free throws in the closing minutes after both teams struggled to limit fouls. He's a guard who finishes with the best of them when he attacks the basket. The way Bova is able to use his body to draw contact is impressive for a player his size.
