First Half Highlights

Complete Game Highlights

Post Game Press Conferences

Trinity outscored Bullitt East 36-16 in the second half to advance to the elite 8 in the KHSAA State Tournament with a 52-32 final. Bullitt East took a lead and controlled the game for much of the first half but a late Trinity run pulled them even at the break. The Shamrocks tried to keep Chargers Derek Willis out of the offense running multiple bodies at him and playing him very physical in the paint.

In the second half The Rocks defense stepped up and created turnovers and turned them into scoring opportunities. It was tied up at 22 when Trinity went on a 10-0 run and never looked back.

Nathan Dieudonne led Trinity with 17 point and 6 rebounds while Charles Foster dumped in 15 points and grabbed 9 boards. Derek Willis led Bullitt East had 13 rebounds and 8 points with Rusty Troutman adding 12 points in a the effort. Trinity outscored Bullitt East 36-16 in the second half.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – No. 1 Trinity slammed rival St. Xavier 67-46 in the championship game of the 2012 Class Act 7th Region Tournament at Bellarmine’s Knights Hall to gain the school’s second trip the state tournament.

Trinity had four players in double figures, including 15 by James Quick, 12 by Darryl Hicks, 12 by Troy Saxton and Charles Foster 11.

Trinity will return to Rupp Arena for the first time since 2004 when the Shamrocks reached the state tournament for the first time. In just the third year as head coach of the Shamrocks, Mike Szabo led Trinity to a win over University Heights (75-57 on Mar. 17, 2004) in the opening round before suffering a three-overtime loss to defending state champion and eventual state runner-up Mason County (66-59 on Mar. 19, 2004).

Trinity and St. Xavier met in the regional finals for the first time in program history and the first time in the postseason since 2001. The meeting of Catholic school rivals marked the first time since 1955 that two Catholic school teams had met in the 7th Region finals.

Trinity posted its 14th consecutive win, the second longest streak in program history, and have won 26 of their last 27 games. Trinity is now 28-1 against teams from the state of Kentucky this season.

With the win, Trinity completed the first undefeated season in program history against seventh region opponents. The Shamrocks were 12-0 against teams from one of the state’s toughest regions in 2011-2012. It is the first unblemished record for a team from the region since 2006-2007.
