In the third quarter of Episcopal Academy’s Inter-Ac league road game at The Haverford School, EA senior point guard Kyle Sacchetta found himself alone behind the 3-point arc.

As he went to shoot, he paused, just for a moment, then fired a pass down low to cutting forward Jermaine Rhoden for an easy layup.

That type of ball movement was the difference for the Churchmen, who pulled away to a 57-40 win at the Fords in a key bounce-back win for a team with Inter-Ac championship aspirations.

“We’ve been talking to them about taking our program, taking our team from good, taking them to great. And the same way, it’s just like our shot selection, head coach Craig Conlin said. “We could have a good shot, but if we move it one more, two more times, we could have a great shot, and with Sacchetta to Jermaine right there, it was perfect.”
