Boys Basketball: Ferrari’s clutch shot gives Riordan slim win over Bellarmine

By Jeremy Balan

The highlight of Frankie Ferrari’s early Riordan basketball career came on a night where he couldn’t buy a bucket for the first 31 minutes and 55 seconds of game time against Bellarmine.

After starting the game 0-of-7 from the field, Ferrari showed no hesitation with the game tied in the final seconds of the fourth quarter.

Against a straight-forward, man-to-man defense, the junior shooting guard took the ball up the court, bluffed a drive to create space, then pulled up and drained a three-pointer with 5 seconds remaining to give Riordan a 47-44 West Catholic Athletic League win over the Bells at Crusader Forum on Saturday night.

Boys Basketball: University takes control of BCL West with win over Urban

By Zack Farmer

After a disappointing loss to Lick-Wilmerding on Tuesday, the University boys basketball team fell behind early against visiting Urban on Friday, but turned up its defensive pressure in the second and third quarters to rally and pull away in 63-47 a win.

The win broke a first-place tie between the two teams in the Bay Counties League West and put the Red Devils all alone at the top of the league with two games remaining.
