In an exiting game that went down to the buzzer, the Warriors escaped with a 66-65 championship game win.
The Warriors took the one point lead with when 6-foot West Chester PA Sr. Austin Constable snuck in for the offensive rebound on a missed foul shot and was fouled himself. He buried one free throw with :17 left, his only point of the game.
Team Izod had a few shots in the final seconds including a pair of shots off of offensive rebounds but none would drop.
6-foot-6 former Rutgers verbal Andrew Nicholas from Eastern York HS in Pennsylvania led the winners with 20 points. 6-foot-4 Cherry Hill East Sr. Chris Santo added 16.
6-foot-2 St. Anthony's grad and Brewster Academy PG Elijah Carter paced Izod with 20 points. 6-foot-4 St. Anthony's Sr. Tyuan Williams tallied 16 points and 11 rebounds. He had 12 and 7 in the second half.
