Rosario shines at Tip-off Classic
St. Raymond's went into halftime with a double-figure lead, but Paterson Catholic came roaring back to make it a game early in the third quarter and actually cut the deficit to two points on multiple occasions. In the end, St. Raymond's had too much for its youthful opponents to contend with and pulled away for the victory.
2009 prospect Omari Lawrence (St. Raymond's) showed he will be a prime recruiting target for Big East programs and had 18 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. Paterson Catholic has three 2010 prospects in Shaquilee Thomas, Jayon James and Fuquan Edwin with high-major potential.
