Archbishop Carroll, off to a 5-1 start this winter, exploded out of the gates early Friday evening in their 80-66 win against host Malvern Prep.
The Patriots, with talented 6-3 junior guard Justin Anderson and 6-4 senior guard Colin Daly hitting shots from both near and far, jumped out to an 18-3 lead 4 1/2 minutes into the game. Anderson finished with 25 points Friday evening, on the heels of a 28-point performance in the Patriots’ 67-65 win against Penn Wood.
“[Anderson] has a great first step,” said Carroll head coach Paul Romanczuk. “He can score from outside, mid-range, and around the rim.”
Daly finished the night with 15 points and eight rebounds.
“Colin is playing like a composed veteran,” said Romanczuk. “He knows what has to be done for us in the way of rebounding, and he grabbed a few loose balls tonight and made some big shots.”
