Great game in Latonia.  Holy Cross stormed to a double digit lead only to see the Birds storm back in the second half and take the lead for good in the 4th.  Lots of offensive firepower in the gym tonight.

This was a great game to call on Holy Cross Radio. It was a fast paced game with a lot of talent on the court and great plays made by both teams. Holy Cross led most of the first half and led by as many as 11 points in the 2nd half until the Birds started their comeback late in the 3rd led (in my opinion) by junior Zach Barth. He hit a big 3 at the end of the 3rd and another to start the 4th. He had 16 of his 18 points in the 2nd half. As good as Sam Vinson and William Herald played I thought, momentum wise, Barth was the difference stepping up and hitting big shots during their comeback.

As far as Holy Cross I couldn't be more proud. They were missing 4 varsity players, one starter (Dylan Arlinghaus) due to contact tracing and battled the whole night against one of the top teams in the 9th. Sophomore Jacob Meyer, who recently went over 1,000 points in his career, was on fire in the first half hitting 4 three pointers en route to 25 first half points. He would finish with a game-high 32 points. Seniors Blake Robinson (16), Brandon McClendon (15) and Jeremiah Hicks (14) were huge all night logging a lot of minutes for the tribe.

Best of luck to both teams the rest of the way. Holy Cross travels to Alexandria to take on  Brossart tonight and then close out their regular season on Friday when they take on the Holmes Bulldogs at the Fieldhouse.

Question for the Holy Cross fans:  while I love the video-game scoring their games have, and it is certainly an entertaining brand of basketball, are the Indians going to be capable of getting stops when they need them in the post-season, or do they have to just try and out-score everyone?

It seems to me the same thing could be said about Highlands.

You could be right, Holy Cross just seems like a more extreme example.  Listen, I'm not judging, I love that style of basketball, but I do appreciate the fact that there are times you have to be able to sit-in, lock-down, and get stops.
