Reggie double teamed

St. Joe’s senior Reggie Agbeko started very strong with an MVP performance of 26 points and 22 rebounds. The Marauders had a comfortable lead in the fourth quarter before McKinley extended the game, although it never made it a two-possession game in the final minutes. A three-pointer by Nazareth Sutton just before the clock expired accounted for the one-point final.

Senior Kyle Briggs added 11 and Drew Cerza, a junior forward who transferred from Cardinal O’Hara, had 10.

After the game was tied at 28-28 at the half, St. Joe’s took a 46-41 lead after three quarters. The Marauders built a 61-52 lead in the final minute before McKinley got back into the game with some free throws.

“We were worried about handling their pressure, and obviously we didn’t handle it very well,” St. Joe’s coach Mark Simon said with a laugh. “Our guys are young, they’re young, but they’re just so quick. Our little guards struggled with it at times. But we’ll get there. It’s a good character builder.”
