Last night was the official opening night of the MIAA. It began with a bang as Archbishop Spalding played host to St. Frances. These two teams boast some of the top talent the league has to offer and should be the two of the three teams who end the shortened season at the top of the standings. It was an up-and-down affair and while Spalding pulled within single digits with less than four minutes to go, St. Frances used a late push to seal the victory by a final score of 96-78.

Staten begins his POY campaign

Khyrie StatenKhyrieStaten6'2" | CGSt. Frances | 2021StateMD got his senior season started off with a bang as the 6-foot-2 guard scored a game-high 31 points in the win. The Delaware State commit scored nine of his 31 from beyond the arc and converted on all seven of his free-throw attempts. He finished shooting 10-of-17 from the field and took advantage consistently in transition. Staten was a dark horse POY candidate coming into this season and if he can ride this momentum for the next few weeks, it’ll be safe to say that he will lock up the honors.
