Gray Bees top Friars for Garden State bragging rights

It was a showdown in our old neck of the woods last night -- St. Benedict's Prep of downtown Newark against St. Anthony High of downtown Jersey City. No. 5 in the nation vs. No. 4, respectively. St. Anthony, coached by the legendary Bobby Hurley, came into the contest having won 83 straight games dating back to 2010. St. Benedict had just suffered an uncharacteristic loss on Wednesday.

Last night's contest was a defensive battle -- the halftime score was 19-17 -- but St. Benny's took it, 47-38. Wish we could have been there, in the Pru Center in Newark. That was some serious hoops. (Although we would have run like heck to our car afterward.)

Coach Hurley's not happy with his troops. I would hate to be them at the next practice.
