While I love the Super 7 discussion, there was some actual basketball played Tuesday night. I will see more tonight at 5 when Stepinac scrimmages Christ the King, the No. 14 team in the country, and, perhaps, on Saturday with Stepinac-Byram Hills (noon) and Mount Vernon-Lincoln (3 p.m.).
For now, we start the season with a tournament at Solomon Schechter…
Tuesday’s recaps —
Solomon Schechter 59, Clark Academy 39: In the first round of the Solomon Schechter tournament, Sam Evans scored 13 points and Jeremy Kelly had 11 points and 10 assists to lead the host Lions to a 59-39 win over Clark Academy in the first round of the Solomon Schechter tournament Tuesday night. Simon Teich added 10 rebounds for the Lions
Tuxedo 45, Hawthorne Cedar Knolls 44: In the first round of the Solomon Schechter tournament, Anthony Sole hit a 3-pointer with two seconds left to beat the Hornets, who let a 26-18 halftime lead slip away. Elijah Neal scored 19 points for HCK, and Aldean Richardson had 18.
Solomon Schechter will host Tuxedo in the championship game tonight (Wednesday) at 6:15 p.m. Clark will play Hawthorne Cedar Knolls in the 4:30 p.m. consolation game.
