Boys Basketball: Sacred Heart Cathedral back on track after win over St. Ignatius

Boys Basketball: Sacred Heart Cathedral back on track after win over St. Ignatius 

By Jeremy Balan

It’s safe to say the Sacred Heart Cathedral boys basketball team’s first quarter against Bellarmine on Saturday was the low point of its season.

The Irish trailed 32-3 after the opening quarter against the Bells, en route to their third straight West Catholic Athletic League loss, but more importantly, lost their confidence.

It may not be all back, but the Irish got a boost to that confidence on Wednesday by defeating rival St. Ignatius 59-51 on the road.

Boys Basketball: Mitty forwards do major damage to beat Sacred Heart Cathedral

Boys Basketball: Mitty forwards do major damage to beat Sacred Heart Cathedral 

By Lamonte Dewindt

Just like in last season’s trilogy between the Sacred Heart Cathedral and Mitty boys basketball teams, a Monarchs post player found a way to dominate the Irish inside.

The only difference this year is that the player was not standout forward Aaron Gordon.

This time it was 6-foot-5 forward Brandon Farrell and his 12 first-quarter points were the difference in Mitty’s 69-57 West Catholic Athletic League road win Friday night.

Boys Basketball: Sacred Heart Cathedral holds off Riordan for fifth WCAL win

Boys Basketball: Sacred Heart Cathedral holds off Riordan for fifth WCAL win 

By Jeremy Balan

Sacred Heart Cathedral senior point guard Khalil James kept the Irish offense alfoat all night against visiting Riordan on Wednesday, so it was no shock the ball was in his hands with the game on the line.

Down by a point with 17 seconds remaining, James got the ball on the perimeter, drove to his left and into the key, drew an extra Riordan defender and dished the ball to unattended teammate Liam O’Reilly under the basket.

The junior forward then made a contested layup to give the Irish the final edge in a 55-54 West Catholic Athletic League win.

There was a silver lining to the Sacred Heart Cathedral girls basketball team’s 44-40 home loss to St. Francis on Saturday night.
