Jimmy Zenevitch netted his 1,000 point
Assumption bound Jimmy Zenevitch scored 32 points including his 1,000 career point for Central Catholic last night but the Raiders came out on the short end of a 72-70 decision to Saint John's Prep.
Saint John's Prep, our #1 ranked team in Mass, got 23 points from Notre Dame bound Pat Connaughton, including the game winner with 25 seconds to play. Zenevitch scored his 1,000 point on an and-one that cut the Saint John's lead to 53-52 with a minute left in the third quarter. Zenevitch also grabbed 13 rebounds on the evening.
For St. John's Prep, junior Mike Carbone came up big as he scored 19 points including 4 threes. For Central Catholic, junior Luis Puello added a dozen points and freshman Tyler Nelson came up big again with 10 points.
St. John’s moved to 19-1 with the win and will have the #1 or #2 seed in the North sectional when the pairings are announced Friday. Central, our #2 ranked team in Mass, moved to 19-2 on the season and will likely meet Saint John's again somewhere in the tournament. There is a chance they could be on the same side of the bracket. All that witnessed last nights game are hoping it's later rather than sooner.
