2018-19 New York City boys basketball (through Jan. 12)
   The weekly look at the New York City metro area's PSAL, CHSAA and AIS schools for the New York State Sportswriters Association is compiled by Mike Libert:

Class AA

1) Bishop Loughlin (13-0)- Solidifying themselves as the top team in New York 
City, the Lions were challenged in a pair of CHSAA league contests this week, 
but found ways to get through both to move to 13-0 on the year. First was a 
64-52 win at home over Mount St. Michael on Tuesday before a more challenging 
game against Msgr. Scanlan on Friday had Loughlin in a nail biter until the 
Lions took control down the stretch in the closing minutes for a 84-72 vic-
tory. Both games had Justin Champagnie '19 leading the way for Bishop Lough-
lin, including a 30 point outing on Friday. This week will start on Sunday 
with a tough home battle with perennial power Christ the King before a Tues-
day matchup with Archbishop Molloy, and then another big one with Cardinal 
Hayes coming to Brooklyn to finish the week on Friday.

2) South Shore (15-2)- Falling in PSAL play for the first time this season a 
couple weeks back now on the road by a point, South Shore had a chance at re-
demption this past Thursday when they went back on the road for another big 
league test at Brooklyn Collegiate. This time they passed the test with fly-
ing colors as Kadary Richmond '19 had 27 points to lead the Vikings in what 
was a 66-59 victory for them over the Lions. That win finished off a 3-0 week 
for South Shore as they made quick work of their other two foes, Chaminade in 
the Apparel Challenge last Sunday 75-41, and Eagle Academy II in league play 
on Tuesday 69-39. In what could be South Shore's last real non-league chall-
enge of the season they will head to Long Island to play in the Tip of the 
Hat Classic on Sunday and take on Long Island Lutheran in a matchup of state 
powers, before getting Robeson and George Westinghouse in PSAL Brooklyn play 
on Tuesday and Friday.

3) St. Raymond (10-4)- Since starting the season 0-3 the Ravens are now 10-1 
in their last 11 games after a strong week with wins over St. Peter's and 
Stepinac in league play, and a non-league victory over The Knox School. The 
win over Stepinac was maybe the most impressive of the season because it was 
domination from the start as Gary Grant '20 had 27 points as St. Ray's roll-
ed to an 80-54 victory that saw them lead by as many as 31 midway through 
the fourth quarter in the win. The offense is clicking, and the defense for 
the Ravens is playing as good as they have all season which has them as a 
sure fire team to watch. Sunday will see St. Raymond go on the road to take 
on Archbishop Molloy, then it will be a Tuesday road matchup at Holy Cross, 
a pair of winnable games, before a Thursday evening showdown at home with 
Christ the King finishes their seven day stretch.

4) Cardinal Hayes (11-2)- After losing back to back games around the start 
of 2019 the Cardinals have gotten things back on track with some impressive 
wins, three this past week in fact as they downed Brooklyn Law and Tech, a 
Class A powerhouse, in the Apparel Challenge 64-53, before easily taking a 
pair of CHSAA league wins over Scanlan 76-63 and Iona Prep on the road 67-45. 
Joe Toussaint '19 led Cardinal Hayes in scoring in each of their three games 
this past week scoring over 20 points in each as he has Hayes pointed once 
again in the right direction as a no doubt title contender. A duel against 
Thomas Jefferson in a big non-league game on Sunday at the Empire Invita-
tional opens the week up for Cardinal Hayes, then it will be Mount St. 
Michael at home on Tuesday, before games on Friday at Bishop Loughlin, and 
Saturday against Woodrow Wilson of Washington D.C. at the Big Apple Invita-
tional finish out what will be a very busy week for the Cardinals.

5) Christ the King (8-5)- It was a shaky start to the season for Christ the 
King, but even missing key pieces due to transfer and injury the Royals are 
now back rolling and easily among the very best in New York City as they 
showed with their 71-64 victory at the Apparel Challenge last Sunday over 
Thomas Jefferson. Quaran McPherson '20 had a major coming out party with the 
guard putting up 27 points in the win for the Royals, while that victory was 
followed up this past week by two more wins over Iona Prep and Archbishop 
Molloy to push them back near the top of the rankings. Things won't get 
easier for Christ the King as on Sunday they will head to Brooklyn to take 
on our #1 team Bishop Loughlin in a major CHSAA showdown, then it's two more 
road league dates with St. Francis Prep on Tuesday and St. Raymond on Thurs-
day, before a game at the HoopHall Classic in Massachusetts on Saturday 
against nationally ranked Vashon out of Missouri. 

6) Thomas Jefferson (14-4)- The Orange Wave went into Queens to take on CHSAA 
power Christ the King last Sunday full of confidence coming off a win over 
South Shore, but the good feelings didn't last long as Jefferson's offense 
was held in check for the most part against the solid Royals defense as Jaquan 
Carlos '21 was the high man scoring just 15 points in what would be a 71-64 
defeat. A pair of Brooklyn AA league contests got the Orange Wave back on 
track though as Kareem Welch '19 had a pair of 30+ point games over Paul 
Robeson and Eagle Academy II in what were a pair of easy Jefferson wins during 
the week to help them stay among the upper echelon of teams in New York City. 
On Sunday the Orange Wave will again test themselves against a top CHSAA power 
as its Cardinal Hayes awaiting them in the Empire Invitational, though the 
week won't get much easier after that as a road test at Brooklyn Collegiate 
comes on Tuesday, before a home date with Abraham Lincoln on Friday night ends 
a busy and important week.

7) Brooklyn Collegiate (9-5)- Fighting from behind in their opener on the road 
this past Tuesday against Boys & Girls, the Lions fell behind by 12 at the 
half only to see a huge late rally see them come back for a 61-60 victory over 
the Kangaroos as Glen Anderson '19 had 16 of his game high 22 points in the 
second half to lead the charge for Brooklyn Collegiate in the win. The Lions 
weren't as lucky on Thursday as this time they were the ones taking a six-
point lead into the fourth quarter, but let it ultimately slip away as even 
though Anderson had a strong outing on the ball it wasn't enough in a 66-59 
loss to South Shore. This Tuesday will present another opportunity for Brook-
lyn Collegiate to prove themselves against the best when they hosts Thomas 
Jefferson, before a Thursday league game at Paul Robeson ends the Lions 
seven-day span.

8) Wings Academy (11-3)- Maybe not the flashiest team in New York City, but 
when you think about tough teams that are well coached Wings are among the 
first that come to mind. Derrick Crothers '19 and Tommy Thomas '19 had 
strong games during the week against Harry Truman and Mott Haven in league 
play to keep Wings unbeaten against PSAL Bronx AA competition, but it was 
Saturday's 62-58 win at the Empire Invitational against Iona Prep that 
really showed that Wings can be a team that holds their own against anyone 
put in front of them. Thomas had 18 in the win over the Gaels on the road, 
with a big week now coming up ahead as Wings will play host to JFK on Tues-
day in what is a rivalry game among two of the powers of the Bronx, before 
a road date in Washington Heights against a solid Manhattan AA team in 
WHEELS that could test Wings' depth and overall firepower.

9) Msgr. Scanlan (6-7)- While they may be under .500 now after a 1-2 week, 
the Crusaders are proving that when it comes to playing against the very 
best in the CHSAA they are going to be a very tough out. After shocking 
Xaverian on the road in Brooklyn last Sunday with a buzzer beating winner 
to take a 57-54 victory, Scanlan went on the road two more times, a tough 
76-63 defeat at Cardinal Hayes in a game that was just a 3 point game at 
halftime, and a 84-72 loss where the Crusaders were within 4 going into the 
fourth quarter. Matt Mayers '19 has been a double-double threat each time 
out for Msgr. Scanlan, and Kobe Brea '20 is one of the more versatile 6-
foot-5 weapons inside and outside that you will see. More road tests await 
this week as the Crusaders will look to get themselves a winning record 
overall when they go to St. Francis Prep on Sunday after, before heading to 
Westchester on Tuesday for a matchup with Iona Prep to close out their two-
game week.

10) Xaverian (13-3)- After trailing by 7 with just over two minutes to go 
this past Sunday against Msgr. Scanlan, the Clippers fought back to tie the 
game at 54 with just over 10 seconds left, and they had a chance to win be-
fore a late steal and a game winner for the Crusaders at the buzzer cost 
them as Xaverian fell in heartbreaking fashion 57-54. Shawn Fulcher '21 had 
18 points in the loss, though credit to the Clippers as they came back just 
48 hours later and rebounded well behind the play of Michael Graham '19 in-
side as he had a 17 point, 13 rebound performance in a 60-47 victory over 
Archbishop Molloy. Off this week, Xaverian will look to continue their in-
credibly strong early season play as the young Clippers will next take the 
court on the 20th when they host St. Francis Prep.

11) Benjamin Cardozo (11-1)- Keeping up there strong play on the season the 
Judges were able to make quick work on Tuesday of Campus Magnet on the road 
in PSAL Queens AA league play 78-58 as Jaylen Davis '19 had 21 points, while 
big man inside Errol White '20 had 14 points and 20 rebounds in a dominating 
effort around the rim. Cardozo kept up their impressive play on Friday with 
an 82-47 victory over Martin Van Buren as the Judges solidified themselves 
as the team to beat this season in Queens. Sunday will see Benjamin Cardozo 
go to the Tip of the Hat Classic where they will start the day off against 
Holy Trinity from Long Island, and then it's a trio of league games, Tuesday 
at home for Beach Channel, Thursday at home against Campus Magnet, and then 
a Friday road game to finish things up against Queens H.S. of Teaching.

12) St. Peter's (10-5)- Going on the road to the Bronx on Sunday saw the 
Eagles hang close for most of the way but ultimately fell to one of New York 
City's best in St. Raymond 72-64. That loss didn't deter St. Peter's the rest 
of the week though as they came back and emphatically defeated Moore Catholic 
88-41 on Wednesday, and then on Friday it was the Eagles again downing Msgr. 
Farrell for the second time this season, getting 22 points from Chris Clancy 
'19 to defeat the Lions 56-51. A pair of what have to be considered winnable 
games are upcoming this week for the Eagles as on Tuesday they will go on the 
road to take on CSI/McCown, before hosting St. Joseph by the Sea on Friday as 
St. Peter's looks to get back on track and prove themselves to be not just a 
Staten Island contender, but a CHSAA city title contender.

13) Curtis (12-5)- After a slow start to the season that saw them go 2-2 in 
league play in their first four on Staten Island, the Warriors have been play-
ing much better basketball as of late as they defeated Stepinac and Eagle 
Academy in the non-league and had a solid week over the past seven days in 
defeating Tottenville and Susan Wagner with ease, but the big one came on 
Wednesday when Curtis took down McKee/Staten Island Tech 74-63, getting re-
venge for one of their losses on the year as Adeleye Oyekanmi '19 had 17 
points and 12 rebounds in the win. This week will see the Warriors going to 
New Dorp on Monday as Curtis looks to get revenge on another Staten Island, 
before then going to Port Richmond on Wednesday, and closing out the week on 
Saturday with a non-league date against The Knox School in Queens.

14) James Monroe (11-4)- An up and down season to date for the Eagles, the 
ups and starting to far outweigh the downs now as Monroe seems to be finding 
their footing as they are winners now of 5 in a row. In league play this 
week the Eagles got a pair of win over Samuel Gompers and Manhattan Center 
with Sage Borbon '19 leading the way in both for James Monroe scoring 19 
and 17 points in the two games during the week, and then it was a weekend 
trip to Albany that saw Monroe take a 67-62 win over a solid Green Tech 
team out of Section 2. Heading back into league play on Friday will see the 
Eagles host Thurgood Marshall Academy before finishing the week by stepping 
out of league again to play Campus Magnet in their James Monroe MLK Classic 
on Saturday.

15) Boys and Girls (9-6)- It looked as if the Kangaroos would have the mar-
quee win they had been looking for all season long when on Tuesday they led 
Brooklyn Collegiate by 12 at the half. That lead didn't hold though as the 
Lions came from behind for a 61-60 victory, as even in defeat it was a 
strong outing inside for Khalif Napolean '19 who had 15 points and 15 re-
bounds. Boys and Girls did come back strong though as Marcus Patterson '19 
led them to a 48-25 league road win, and then taking on Wadleigh at the 
Crump Classic on Saturday it was a 76-59 victory on the road to put the 
Kangaroos in position to move into the Top 15. Sunday will see B&G go to Long 
Island to take on Baldwin in the Tip of the Hat Classic, and then it's a pair 
of Brooklyn AA matchups to close the week with the Kangaroos going to Abraham 
Lincoln on Tuesday before hosting Eagle Academy II on Thursday.



Class A 1) Seward Park (13-0)- Remaining perfect on the year, the Bears made quick work in their own game of this past week as Mamadou Diallo '20 had a double- double with 18 points and 14 rebounds in a convincing 81-37 road victory over Stuyvesant this past Tuesday. It's been a fairly light schedule so far in 2019 with Seward Park having had only two games so far in the newly year, though this week they will double that total as on Tuesday the Bears will host Hunter College before a road test on Thursday against Eleanor Roosevelt, and with the target squarely on Seward Park's back now they can no question expect to get the very best from both of their opponents this week. 2) Msgr. Farrell (12-2)- We could've gone a number of different ways for the No. 2 spot this week but decided to stay the course with the Lions who went 2-1 on the week, a pair of convincing wins of Cardinal Spellman and Port Richmond, before falling on Friday night in their major rivalry game on Staten Island against St. Peter's 56-51. It was a Class AA vs. Class A battle, and a game that Farrell was in front start to finish because of the play of Anthony Clemenza '19 who scored 20 points and is having a fantastic season overall, but the Lions just couldn't get over the hump with both of their losses this season now coming against the Eagles. Another tricky contest with Fordham Prep is coming up on Sunday out on Staten Island, then it will be another home date on Wednesday with Petrides, before closing the week on the road in Queens on Friday night against Msgr. McClancy. 3) Brooklyn Law and Tech (12-2)- It's hard to find fault in the Jets this past week even with a loss as they went to Queens to play Class AA power Cardinal Hayes in the Apparel Challenge, a matchup that not many going in gave Law and Tech a chance in. They surprised those on hand keeping it a single digit game for most of the way, and even leading for the majority of the opening quarter before ultimately falling 64-53, though impressing in defeat. Davonta Cook '19 showed to be among the best on the floor in the loss with 25 points, though in their 79-54 win over Tilden to finish the week the senior guard had his first triple-double with 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists showing he is a do it all leader for the Jets. A home date on Tuesday with Boerum Hill, and road con- test on Thursday at Bushwick Campus await, though it's a Big Apple Invitational test against St. Charles of Maryland on Saturday that will again show what the Jets are made of. 4) Canarsie (12-2)- Having lost star forward Adisa Isaac '19 who left Canarsie to enroll early at Penn State as he was a coveted football recruit for the Nittany Lions, many would've felt that he Chiefs would've been in a lot of trouble, but since his departure it's been nothing but smooth sailing as this past week they defeated Midwood on the road 80-75 as Khadafi Julio '19 had 28 points to lead Canarsie in the win, and then it was a blowout victory over Boerum Hill 85-33 as Julio again stepped up with 27 points as he is rising his game to another level. Just one league game is on the schedule this week as on Wednesday it will be a home date with James Madison, but then on Saturday the Chiefs will play in the South Shore MLK Classic where they will face off with CHSAA school LaSalle Academy. 5) Nazareth (10-4)- There are few teams in Class A this season who can match toe to toe with the overall talent level that the Kingsmen have as they have players who will be ones to watch in New York City for years to come with the key cogs to what Nazareth is doing this year all sophomores. The Kingsmen took wins over LaSalle Academy 83-77, and St. Joseph by the Sea 66-54 this week as T.J. Morris '21 was Nazareth's lead man in both games as the sophomore combo guard is impressing enough to already be on the radar of most Division 1 pro- grams. In what will be the Kingsmen's only game this week they will play host to a solid Xavier team with Nazareth going for their fifth win in a row. 6) All Hallows (11-4)- Not the start to the week that All Hallows wanted, they went to Fordham Prep and never found any traction as the Rams size caused all sorts of problems in what was a 62-53 loss for the Gaels, though Nick Johnson '19 was able to pour in 23 points in the defeat. They would get a win over Xavier 57-47 on Thursday, and then a big 2OT classic on Saturday over McKee/Staten Island Tech 87-82 in which the Gaels got buzzer beaters at the end of regulation and end of the first OT session to keep the game going, to which they would ultimately win behind the 28 points each from Johnson and Devin Diaz '20. It's a quick turnaround for All Hallows as on Sunday they will go out to Adelphi to play in the Tip of the Hat Classic against Nassau County power Uniondale in their first of three games on the week with a home date at Cardinal Spellman coming up on Tuesday, and then another non-league date on the road on Saturday against another Long Island foe in St. Anthony's. 7) Transit Tech (14-1)- It was supposed to be a one game week with a road date at Fort Hamilton as the Express's lone contest, but just a couple minutes into it a serious injury forced the game to be halted and it will be made up at a later date still to be determined. That meant Transit Tech will go over 10 days between games which could cause rust, but could also be a good thing as they will look to work out some things in the gym and get back on the court looking better than ever they hope. Led by Jeremy Moranta '20 inside the Ex- press will finally be back on the floor on Monday when they host Wingate. That will be followed up by a road game at John Jay on Wednesday, and then it will be another home matchup, this time against Franklin D. Roosevelt on Friday night to close out a busy week of action for Transit. 8) Lehman (14-1)- Staying perfect in PSAL Bronx A play, the Lions hosted Christopher Columbus on Monday and made easy work of their league foes as Charlie Casillas '20 had a career high 25 points to lead Lehman to an 82-41 victory. Going on the road on Friday then had the Lions at Grace Dodge, and while it was tight for most of the way it was Lehman doing just enough to get the job done as Bismark Nsiah '20 had 14 points and 12 rebounds in the 54-41 win. A tough road game awaits on Monday when Lehman goes to previously ranked Adlai Stevenson in what will be a game to watch, before another road game at Bronx Science on Wednesday and a home game with Walton on Friday close out what should be a tough week ahead for the Lions. 9) Fordham Prep (9-4)- We welcome back the Rams this week as they may have started off the season slowly going 4-4 in their first eight games, but it's been 5-0 since including a big 62-53 victory over All Hallows on Tuesday even- ing in a game that saw Kyle Filipowski '21 use his 6'6" size on the wing to control the game with 16 points, while his 6'9" brother Matthew Filipowski '21 added 14 points and 11 rebounds in the Fordham Prep win. The Rams follow- ed that big win up with a 60-33 domination over Cardinal Spellman to propel them back into the Top Ten, though to stay here it won't be easy as Fordham Prep goes to Staten Island on Sunday to square off with our #2 Msgr. Farrell team, then it's another road game on Tuesday with LaSalle Academy, and then the week finishes off back at home on Friday when the Rams host a Class B CHSAA squad in Salesian. 10) Hillcrest (11-0)- They may not have the strongest schedule that you will find but when you are 11-0 that speaks for itself and is good enough to get the Hawks into the Top Ten for the first time this week. Playing in the Queens A East II this season, the Hawks are pretty much dominating their league winning their games by an average of 18.2 points, though this week saw them get tested as they had to hold on late for a 63-55 win over William Bryant as Bobby Thomas '19 had 13 points and 10 rebounds for Hillcrest in the win. They also did easily down Jamaica on Tuesday 83-51 as they hope for more comfortable wins this week, though it won't be easy as on Monday they host a non-league game against Louis Brandeis, then on Tuesday they go to second place Thomas Edison, Wednesday will see Hillcrest again step out of league against Beacon out of Manhattan, and finishing out a busy four game slate this week it will be a Thursday home league contest against Metro- politan.

Class B 1) Bronx School for Law, Government, & Justice (13-0)- It's another week in the top spot for the Jaguars, though it was far from an easy week as a road game at Comprehensive Model School proved to be much tougher than they or anyone else could've expected. Law, Government, and Justice was able to take a 69-62 victory but it was a single digit game most of the way, and while the Jaguars never trailed in the game it was a close and competitive contest that saw Azriel Almodovar finish with a career high 34 points and 11 assists to carry his team to the win. Up first this week in league play for Bronx School for Law, Government, and Justice will be Bronx Leadership on the road, but it's Saturday afternoon's non-league contest at the James Monroe MLK Classic against our #2 Fannie Lou Hamer that in Class B is truly the game of the sea- son. 2) Fannie Lou Hamer (14-2)- Getting it in just about every way from Anthony Rose '20, the Panthers have been playing stellar basketball as of late as they dominated Health Opportunities 81-37 and Explorations Academy 85-34 this week to truly prove to those in the Bronx B Division in the PSAL that Fannie Lou is starting to peak and play their best ball of the season. Rose had double- doubles in both his games this week including a 22 point, 18 rebound perform- ance on Tuesday. It's a season making week coming up here for the Panthers as on Tuesday they will go on the road to take on South Bronx Prep in a meeting of Class B powers, then it's Archimedes/Maleska on Thursday on the road, be- fore a big showdown with our #1 Bronx School for Law, Government, and Justice team at the James Monroe MLK Classic on Saturday in a must see matchup for our #1 spot in the rankings. 3) Summit Academy (13-1)- A dominating and easy week for the Eagles over the past seven days as neither All City Leadership and Cobble Hill School could hang with the offensive abilities that Summit brings to the table. First on Wednesday it was 20 points for Jordan Council '20 as he led 5 Summit scorers in double figures to pace them to a 96-66 victory, and then it was Shamal Grant Jr. '19 who had 18 points to lead the Eagles to a 81-41 win over Explorations. Incredibly deep on the offensive side of the ball, along with being a great and underrated defensive team as well, Summit Academy will look to keep playing their kind of basketball this week when they host BCAM on Monday in what will be the Eagles last game before the PSAL break. 4) Riverdale (9-0)- Moving their undefeated mark on the season to 9-0, the Falcons found a way to get the job done on Wednesday when they went to Brook- lyn to take on Poly Prep as Riverdale got 23 points and 15 rebounds from Jack Krentzman '19 to rally from an early fourth quarter deficit to take the 59-58 victory. That was victory one of two this week for the Falcons as sophomore Luke Klores '21 had a season high 16 points to help propel Riverdale to a 57- 47 road victory over Hackley School in Westchester as they so far are proving themselves to be the class this season of the prestigious Ivy League. Looking to stay perfect on the year, the Falcons will go on the road to take on Grace Church on Monday, the will stay on the road on Wednesday to face off with Hor- ace Mann, before coming home for a Friday date against Trinity. 5) Dalton (11-2)- When it comes to prolific scorers in the Ivy League none so far this season may match the abilities of Dalton's Mark Engel '20 who contin- ues to be a major scorer and shooter from just about anywhere on the floor. Scoring 21 points in a come from behind 50-48 victory for the Tigers week started things out for Engel, but he continued it with two more 20+ point showings in Dalton road wins over Fieldston and Trinity on Friday and Satur- day respectively. Two more road tests await the Tigers this week as they will head to the Bronx on Monday to square off with a young but talented Horace Mann team, before coming back to Manhattan to take on one of the main Ivy League rivals in Collegiate School on Wednesday. 6) Uncommon Charter (11-1)- Confidently moving up the Top Ten, Uncommon Char- ter is proving to be one of the best defensive teams in Class B as on Tuesday they put together a near flawless performance of defense to knock off their rivals in Achievement First 40-36. It may not have been a pretty brand of basketball but it got the job done for the Sabers who got 15 points from Ahzariah Douglas '20 in the win that put them alone in first place in the Brooklyn B East Division of the PSAL. Coming up here will be a pair of games on back to back days for Uncommon Charter as on Monday they will host School for Classics, before ending their week on Tuesday coming back 24 hours later on the road to face off with Teachers Prep. 7) South Bronx Prep (15-2)- Even though they are taking care of business in their league as demonstrated again with blowout victories over Morrisania, Bronx Early College, and DeWitt Clinton, the Cougars couldn't pick up the big win this week as on Tuesday they went and playing Adlai Stevenson at the Bar- clays Center, a game they were leading at halftime with Jordan Agyemang '19 dominating early on, but the offense went a bit cold down the stretch in what ended up being a 63-57 loss. It could've propelled South Bronx Prep back into the conversation of top team in Class B, though they can make that case again this week when on Tuesday they host our #2 Fannie Lou Hamer team in a game with big rankings implications. Thursday will then see the Cougars go on the road to take on their rivals in South Bronx, with a non-league game at the James Monroe MLK Classic against Community Health Academy of the Heights closing out the week on Saturday. 8) Dwight School (9-4)- Leading by 7 going into halftime on the road at Dalton on Monday it looked like Dwight had everything going for them, but sloppy play down the stretch allowed for a disappointing 50-48 defeat that left the Lions feeling as if they let one slip away. Richard Nweke '22 continues to show though why he may be New York City's next big name to remember as a big 6-foot- 8 post presence down low as he helped Dwight come back as the week went on with a pair of wins over Packer 62-46 on Friday and 54-30 on Saturday over Grace Church. The talent is there for Dwight it's all about consistency for them, something they hope to continue putting together this coming week when they host Friends Seminary on Wednesday, and then hit the road for a big matchup with Leman Prep in a Friday evening clash 9) Regis (7-1)- We haven't had a Class B CHSAA team in the rankings all season long until now with the Raiders making their debut appearance. They are coming off a strong week with a 68-37 win at Cristo Rey, but Friday's 65-52 win over Salesian was the big win that propelled them into the Top Ten as Joe Manfredi '20 had 18 points in the win, with the junior putting together a strong season as he leads the B Division with just under 21 points per game. Looking to keep their strong run of play going, Regis will go out to Long Island on Sunday to play in the Tip of the Hat Classic where they will face off with Portledge School, before league games against Cathedral Prep at home on Tuesday, and at St. John's Prep on Friday finish out the Raiders week. 10) Bathgate Educational Complex (10-2)- We expected a fairly easy and com- fortable week for Bathgate, but you don't always get what you expect. Every- thing started fairly good enough for the Bulldogs as on Wednesday they got 25 points each from Michael Boafo '20 and Jeffrey Agyeman '20 in what was a 92- 47 victory over Bronx Leadership, but Friday proved to be the big shocker as Bathgate went to Albert Tuitt Educational Complex, fell behind 16-2 after one quarter, and while they tried to rally late couldn't dig out of the hole in what was a 60-55 loss. Barely staying in our Top Ten this week, Bathgate will look to rebound on Wednesday when they take on Bronx Studio School for Writers and Artists in what will be the Bulldogs only game over the next seven days.
