Girls Basketball: Mercy 54, Eastside Prep 37

The Skippers (15-0, 1-0) got their first West Bay Athletic League test and answered accordingly against the Panthers (6-8, 0-1).

Mercy only had a 22-15 lead at the half, but pulled away steadily in the second half again behind the solid play of seniors Courtney Sabahi and Mariah Masoli.

Sabahi had a team-high 19 points and eight rebounds, while Masoli had 16 points and five second-half rebounds despite another game in foul trouble.

Boys Basketball: Serra 57, Riordan 41

The Crusaders (8-5, 1-2) followed their best win of the season with one of their worst losses on the road against the Padres (11-2, 2-1).

No Riordan player scored in double digits and the Crusaders were out-rebounded 37-18 in the loss. Senior guard Roderick Gittens led all Riordan scorers with eight points, while Geru Mabrey and Anthony Castillo added seven points apiece.

Serra’s Henry Caruso led all scorers with a 26 points.

Girls Basketball: University 52, Lick-Wilmerding 36

The Red Devils (13-1, 1-0) outscored the Tigers (4-7, 0-1) 14-0 in the first quarter and cruised to their first Bay Counties League West victory behind a game-high 24 points from standout senior center Amelia King.

No other players scored in double figures on either team, but Lick was led by senior forward Kate Waters, who had a team high seven points.

      Well its not going to happen this year. Mercy is playing well, but will have to live with the Boise State dilemma. Being that said, just do your best, try to win your league, section division, if things work out, a run at State. Again, its just not going to happen this year(hypothetically). As for rankings since a lot of posters seem to be pre-occupied with this, again, unless SI collaspes, I dont see them dropping a whole lot.

      The only scenario, I see Mercy taking over the top spot is at end of year, if SI losing in quarters of sectional and Mercy advancing to Norcals and winning at least one game. Hypothetically, I would imagine an SHC/Mercy match-up would be a competitive game as both are built the same way.
