Game 3: Roman Catholic (Philadelphia) Handily Defeats Calvin Coolidge (DC)

Roman Catholic was just too big and too fast for Calvin Coolidge. In the third game of the day at the 27th Gonzaga DC Classic, Roman knocked off Coolidge by a score of 90 – 41. Roman, as the team is known in Philadelphia, is ranked among the top 15 in the nation and boasts a trio of players committed to play next year at Penn State University.

Roman came out running and led 22-7 after the first quarter. After that, the game was never close. Senior guard Nazeer Bostick led all scorers with 27 points on 10/12 shooting and 6 for 6 from the free throw line for the Cahillites. He was followed by last-year’s DC Classic MVP Tony Carr with 14 (including 10/10 on free-throws) and 11 points for Junior D’Andre Vilmar.

Sophomore James Hampton led Coolidge with 9 points, followed by senior Terrance Rozier with 7.

Roman Catholic will take on Good Counsel in the second semi-final game Saturday at 8:30 PM at Gonzaga.
