Basketball tournament action



In boys’ high school basketball last week, two teams advanced to the semifinals of their respective tournaments. St. Augustine (Richland) prevailed over Camden Catholic (Cherry Hill) on March 7 by a score of 48-43 in a quarterfinal game of the South Jersey, Non-Public B tournament. Last Monday, however, the Hermits lost to Paul VI, 47-36, in a semifinal game. On March 6, Holy Spirit (Absecon) defeated Gill St. Bernard, 67-52, in the South Jersey Non-Public B quarterfinals. Two days later, they lost to Patrick School, 75-49, in the semifinals. Top left, Holy Spirit’s Leon Daniels goes up for 2 points.
