BOYS' BASKETBALL: Private school roundup



Inter-City Baptist rebounded from a pair of losses two weeks ago with a pair of wins over Parkway Christian and Lutheran Northwest last week.

On Tuesday, the Chargers defeated Parkway Christian 69-53.

Inter-City went to its bench early and often after jumping out to a significant lead in the first quarter.

“We got out big and subbed early,” Inter-City Coach Mark Kraatz said.

The Chargers led 38-18 at the half and led by as many as 25 – 67-42 – in the fourth quarter.

Evan Kraatz had 16 points and 14 assists to pace the Chargers.

Luke Barber also scored 16, Nathanael Packwood had 15 points and 12 rebounds and Garrett Kraatz added 10.

On Friday, Inter-City traveled to Lutheran Northwest and came home with a 57-44 victory.

The Chargers did not pull away until late and led by only four points at the break.

“We made a nice little push in the third and it started getting away from them in the fourth,” Kraatz said.

Packwood had another strong showing down low with 23 points and 10 rebounds.

Barber had 17 points and a career-high 15 rebounds while Evan Kraatz had nine points, 10 assists and five steals.

Inter-City (15-4) will host Detroit Westside on Wednesday.



Cabrini falls in playoffs



Cabrini fell nine points short of playing at Calihan Hall after losing 59-50 to Bishop Foley in the semifinals of the C-D Catholic League playoffs last Tuesday.

Foley jumped out to a 19-9 first quarter lead and held a 29-16 lead at the half.

The Monarchs fought valiantly in the second half and outscored Foley 34-30 over the final two quarters, but could not overcome the large deficit.

Andrew Smith led the Monarchs with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Mike Ball joined him in double figures with 12 while Tony Bertani chipped in nine.

Cabrini fell to 11-7 with the loss.



Richard falls



Gabriel Richard traveled two hours to Pinckney for a matchup with Livingston Christian last Tuesday and fell 70-55.

After a long bus ride, the Pioneers (8-11) opened sluggishly, trailing 16-8 after eight minutes and 39-29 at the half.

“The kids were a little shellshocked at the beginning,” Richard Coach Kris Daiek said. “They shot the ball well in their gym and we were kind of grasping at straws to find ways to stop these guys.

“Every time we made a run of six or eight points, they would answer. We take pride in our defense and that was the most points we’ve given up all year.”

The Pioneers cut the deficit to eight points entering the fourth, but could get no closer in the 15-point loss.

Jacob Camilerri led the Pioneers with 16 points.

Danny Baum added 11 and Colton Jarratt and Tyler Blaszack each had 10.
