(3) Red Bank Catholic 53 (6) Bishop Air 52 – Non-Public South A Tournament Quarterfinal
Red Bank Catholic advanced to the Non-Public South A Semifinals with an exciting 53-52 victory over Bishop Ahr. RBC trailed for three quarters after not being able to match the Trojan’s physical style of play. However thanks to a great push from Notre Dame football commit Kevin Bauman the Caseys were able to fight back from a nine point deficit to take a 41-40 lead heading into the fourth quarter. In the home stretch Bauman, who finished with 21 points continued his impressive scoring performance and Red Bank Catholic was able to hold off Bishop Ahr’s last attempt effort in the closing seconds to hang on for the win.
