Marist breezes to pair of basketball victories
Boy, that was easy.
Marist basketball coach Gene Nolan probably wouldn’t utter such a statement, but there was no denying the RedHawks’ dominance in a pair of games last week, one of which was an East Suburban Catholic Conference contest.
First up for Marist was Hubbard, which went down hard on Tuesday. Spurring the RedHawks’ resounding 76-30 triumph were Jeremiah Ferguson and Nic Weishar, who tallied 14 and 13 points, respectively. Ferguson struck again on Friday, as his 18 points represented Marist’s top individual scoring effort in a 47-28 romp past Notre Dame.
Kevin Lerma added 12 points in the latter game for the RedHawks (18-8, 4-3), who played St. Viator this past Wednesday and complete their regular-season schedule tonight versus Chicago Agricultural Science.
