Swingman Charles Pride exited CBA for Liverpool, but definitely brought his game along. During a much-hyped early season test against Bishop Ludden he dropped 20 and blocked a few shots. But his efforts weren't enough to overcome 22 points by Mika Adams-Woods. Ludden won the game 65-50.

Swingman Charles Pride (#5) exited CBA for Liverpool, but he definitely brought his game along. During a much-hyped early season test against Bishop Ludden (Peppino’s Invitational Tournament) he dropped 20 and blocked a few shots. But Pride’s efforts weren’t enough to overcome 22 points by Mika Adams-Woods. Ludden won the game 65-50.

Game of the Week

Last night’s Section III match up between Bishop Ludden and Christian Brothers Academy (CBA) was the perfect crescendo for the Zebra Classic Tournament.  It was also a great showcase match sophomore stars Mika Adams-Woods and Charles Pride.

CBA may be the better team (this was their first loss), but after a 37-point, takeover performance, Adams-Woods showed why he may be the regions best talent. His swishing and dishing, his adept ball-handling, and cat-like quickness would have only been more impressive if the superlatives were supplied by Clyde Frazier.

Ludden won 67-58.

CBA will get their chance at revenge when the two teams meet again in February. At that end-of-the-season meeting, the throwback jerseys will be a distant memory.

Mark Lutz finished with 13 points for CBA.

CBA swingman Charles Pride

CBA swingman Charles Pride is an expert at slashing to the hoop. He had 16 points last night in a win against Jameville-Dewitt.

Christian Brother’s Academy will play host to Westhill tonight in the final of the Bottar Leone Holiday Classic tonight.

Ryan Roland of Westhill will look to fill it up from the three point line against CBA tonight.

Mark Lutz

Christian Brothers Academy came up with two wins at the Peppino’s Invitational. They defeated Liverpool last night 60-56 on the strength of Charles Pride’s double double (15 and 10) and Mark Lutz’s 23, including two key three pointers in the second half. We look forward to the CBA Bishop Ludden match up (aka the city’s Holy War) on January 16.

The sharp shooter

After a sluggish first quarter in the game versus Liverpool,  CBA (and their motion offense) looked to be in mid-season form.
