Roselle Catholic 48 Gill St. Bernard’s 47 – Boys Basketball
Chalk this one up as a game-of-the-year nominee. After only scoring 16 points and trailing by double-digits at the half, Roselle Catholic (16-1) relied heavily on senior guard Colby Rogers as he hit a pair of free throws with seven seconds remaining in regulation to cap off a come-from-behind win against Gill St. Bernard’s.
Rogers dropped a game-high 24 points with five three-pointers to spark the comeback. Newly-minted McDonald’s All-American Kahlil Whitney was off but still managed to score 13 points.
Gill St. Bernard’s led 26-16 at the half and was paced by junior forward Zach Martini, who dropped a monstrous 19-point, 17-rebound double-double. Rutgers commit Paul Mulcahy chipped in with eight points in the loss.
