Ranney 65 Mater Dei Prep 61

Bryan Antoine had 28 points including the game-tying and go-ahead basket in the final 1:30 to give Ranney a season sweep of the Seraphs.  Mater Dei built a 35-26 halftime lead, but Ranney opened the third with a 12-0 run highlighted by a Scottie Lewis 360 dunk.  Lewis had 14 points in his second game back from an ankle injury.  Kyle Cardaci had 11 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter.  The Seraphs took a 61-59 lead after a Jamir Watkins three-pointer and a pair of free throws, but Antoine stepped up in crunch time and Savior Akuwovo blocked Alexander Rice’s attempt to force overtime leading to an Ahmadu Sarnor layup as time expired.  JSZ has full highlights and post-game reaction from a thrilling game in Middletown:
