(UPDATED, 8:27 p.m.) Mount St. Michael was upset earlier today by St. Joe’s by the Sea. Now, an even bigger shocker — defending CHSAA champ Iona Prep was upset by Xavier 78-75. The Gaels sliced a five-point deficit to one in the final seconds but could not tie the score.
So that now begs the question: Could this be Stepinac’s year?
The Crusaders already beat Monsignor McClancy 57-52 to advance to Tuesday’s semifinals. They will meet Xavier on Tuesday at Cardinal Spellman in the semifinals.
UPDATED, 9:00 p.m.: I heard from Stepinac coach Tim Philip. His team will play Xavier at 7:30 on Tuesday in the semifinals. The game is at Cardinal Spellman.
