Manual hangs on over St. X 52-48
These teams are very similar to each other. They both look to get the ball inside on backdoor cuts or lob passes. When two alike teams play you are likely going to get a close game and this was no different. It came right down to the final seconds when down 51-48 St. Xavier tried to draw a foul on a three point attempt. The call was an offensive foul sealing the Manual win.
Manual– Brian Repisdto led them with 10 points, Joe Drake was 3/5 from the 3 point line, and Trey Wells had 9 points and 7 rebounds
St.X– Nathan Smith had a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds. The team shot 0/12 from 3 point land.
Ugly Stat- Take away Joe Drakes’ 3/5 3 point shooting and both teams combined for 0/23 from behind the arc.
