Sophomore steps up

Perez and Co. keep winning

The Riverdale Baptist Crusaders of Maryland were defeated by the Clark Cougars at the Lone Star Invitational tournament 52-50.  From the DMVElite.com website:

The Crusaders (1-0) won the National Christian School Athletic Association Division 1A championship in April with an 81-56 win over Team FCA from Pennsylvania. Despite that success, the Crusaders still feel like they have something to prove. Durant said he and his teammates were motivated after being left out of ESPN’s Preseason Powerade Fab 50 rankings, which feature No. 3 Oak Hill Academy, No. 4 Montrose Christian, No. 13 DeMatha Catholic, No. 19 Gonzaga and No. 45 John Carroll.

“We should be ranked, like, Top 10 this year,” Durant said. “We’re all seniors and we know how to play the game. We’ve seen the rankings on ESPN, and we’re trying to kill everybody; we’re coming.”

Not so fast was the message from Clark.  Adam Perez had 16 points in the win and solid team play and another great defensive showing gave the Cougars the win.

Up next is Churchill at Churchill this morning.
