BABC Winter Classic – Event Recap

The third and final day of exciting action from Boston took place on Monday at the Reggie Lewis Center in remembrance of Rodney Hughes.  Here’s a rundown from the first ever BABC Winter Classic:

North Quincy 47  Dorchester 30

North Quincy got the better of Dorchester in a defensive oriented contest in which the victors held their opposition to just three field goals in the second half, including a thirteen minute span off the game clock without a single one.  Anthony Green continued to play well in his breakout senior season finishing with 12 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 blocks while Efthim Butka added a double-double of his own with 10 and 12 along with 6 blocks.  Markus Neale led Dorchester with 12 points and 12 rebounds.  

Everett 78  University (CT) 62

In a game that was much closer than the final score indicated, Everett was able to wear down their counterparts from Connecticut and eventually pull away in the fourth quarter.  Will Hardie scored a team high 25 points for University including three three-pointers in the first half, while Jaqhawn Walters pulled down 20 boards.  Timmance McKinney continued to lead the way for Everett with a game high 19 points while Gary Clark added 18 points and 8 rebounds.  

Cambridge Rindge & Latin 69  St. Peter Marian 55

The 14th ranked Cambridge team extended a five point halftime lead to cruise to a comfortable double figure win on Monday.  Senior big man Fredens Deneus continued to anchor the team in the paint with his latest double-double (13 points, 10 rebounds) while Diandre Shoulder-Williams led the team in scoring at 18.  Freshman guard Jakigh Dottin also turned in a big performance with 12 points.  Makai Ashton-Langford led St. Peter Marian with 13 while Jamal Smith added 11 of his own.  

Boston College HS 73  Lynn English 62

Boston College HS, ranked 15th in the state according to ESPN Boston, scored a bit of an upset over 3rd ranked Lynn English.  Sophomore guard Jack Loughnane picked off three steals to help sparkplug an early fourth quarter run that would prove to be the difference.  He finished with 16 points and 5 steals while Isaiah Bowman added 17 points and their frontcourt managed to control the boards.  Lynn was led by Eric Rosario who finished with 17 points and 8 rebounds.  

New Mission 58  Central Catholic 50

The nightcap featured two of the MIAA’s perennial powerhouses as New Mission relied on their defense and rebounding to score the win.  They not only held Fairfield bound sniper Tyler Nelson to just 10 points by denying him the ball in their box and one defense, but were also able to dominate the glass. Asante Sandiford led the way with 16 points and 8 rebounds while Bam Rivers had a double-double with 12 points and 11 boards.  Nick Cambio led Central Catholic with 19 points.
