Cate 20 9 21 10 – 60
Bishop Diego 9 13 19 17 – 58
An electric finish in pool play at the Nordhoff Tournament Cate Rams (1-3) edging the Bishop Cardinals 60-58! The last five minutes of the game were neck and neck with each team taking the lead.
We came out eager and ecstatic to give one of the best teams in SB a good game! Senior Babacar Pouye set the tone as the dominant big man with eight first-quarter points to jump out to a 20-9 first-quarter lead.
Bishop Diego wasn’t going anywhere and won the second quarter 13-9 behind Tyler Williams defensive stops and shooting.
This being our first week of basketball competition we have been preaching that winning the first and 3rd quarters sets the tone. We haven’t been able to do that the last two days of the tourney but we are getting better every day.
The Rams had an extremely balanced attack and great leadership all around. Our bench was loud and all players contributed today and got in the game.
Senior Mason Oetgen finished with 12, senior Tyler Tom finished with 13, and Pouye led the rams with 18.
Tyler Williams for bishop led all scorers with 20 and Kai Morphy contributed 12.
Rams continue into day four of the tourney Saturday, game time tbd based on how pool play finishes tonight.
