The Varsity basketball team prevailed in a thrilling match-up with Nazareth Regional HS last night in the semifinals of the Msgr. King Tournament held at St. Thomas Aquinas in Brooklyn.
The Cardinals were led by Isaiah Allen-Smith (27 pts, 11 rebs) and James Bouknight (25 puts, 11 rebs) as they withstood a furious 4th quarter run by Nazareth before the game went into OT.
The Cardinals would go on to outscore Nazareth 12-2 in the extra period to secure the victory.
With the win, La Salle advances to the Championship of the Msgr. King Tournament at 9pm this evening, when they will play Msgr. McClancy in a rematch of the Br. Arnold Tournament Championship game from two weeks ago, a 2 point McClancy win.
