Trey by Hubbard gives SHC victory

Teandre Hubbard thought it was off coming out of his hands.

But like most of the fourth-quarter shots for the Sacred Heart Cathedral boy’s basketball team in Wednesday’s West Catholic Athletic League game against Riordan, the junior guard’s deep jumper landed at the bottom of the net.

Hubbard took a pass from Jerry Brown and drained a 3-pointer from the left corner with 43.5 seconds remaining to give the Irish a 57-53 lead. He scored all 11 of his points in the final period as Sacred Heart held off every charge by the host Crusaders to earn a 59-56 win. Riordan (15-8, 8-5) entered the fourth quarter behind by two points and five times rallied to tie the score, but never could go ahead as the Irish (15-10, 7-6) answered each time.

Sacred Heart shot 7-of-11 from the field and outrebounded the Crusaders 8-3 in the fourth quarter, creating second chances even when it did miss.

“I thought I missed that 3 when it left my hands and I was really glad it went down,” Hubbard said. “It was a big shot for us and I think we’re coming along. We’re playing a lot more together than we were in the first half of the year.”

Kevin Greene added 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Irish, who stood at 8-7 overall on Jan. 8 but have now won six of their last seven games.

Jorge Camacho, who leads the WCAL in scoring and rebounding, had 21 points and 11 rebounds for Riordan. Daniel Cannon added 15 points and five assists for the Crusaders.
