Stepinac Claims Archdiocesan Crown

Archbishop Stepinac High School defeated St. Raymond, 73-68, for the archdiocesan boys basketball championship at Mount St. Michael Academy in the Bronx Feb. 29.

“Our guys battled and stayed together for 32 minutes. The game was played at a high level, in an unbelievable atmosphere,” Stepinac coach Pat Massaroni told CNY and Catholic Sports Scene.

R.J. Davis, who will play next season at the University of North Carolina, finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists for the Crusaders. Adrian Griffin Jr., who will attend Duke University on a basketball scholarship in 2021-2022, contributed 17 points, eight rebounds, five assists and four blocks.

Luke Fizulich and Justin Morety added 13 points apiece for Stepinac (18-9 overall). Malcolm Chimezie had 12 points, four rebounds and three blocks.
