Boys Basketball: Riordan 57, Valley Christian 48
As rough the last couple of days have been for the Crusaders (8-4, 1-1), they found some solace on the court in San Jose.
No Riordan players scored in double figures, but it was a 11-0 run in the second quarter, spurred by six consecutive points from senior guard Roderick Gittens, that gave the Crusaders a lead they would not relinquish.
Gittens, guard D.J. Harvey and forward Graham Gilleran shared the team lead with nine points apiece, while guards Geru Mabrey and Anthony Castillo added eight points each.
Forward Iwunna Ugbaja also contributed offensively with six points, but also played solid defense against Valley Christian’s 6-foot-9 center Cameron Stewart, limiting him to just four second-half points.
Senior guard Nick McGrew had a game-high 16 points for the Warriors (9-3, 0-2) in the loss.
