A few hours before the Neumann-Goretti Saints hosted Bonner-Prendergast Friday night, Saints assistant coach Pat Sorrentino opined, “Some days we look like we can beat the Knicks. Sometimes we look like we can’t beat anybody.”
The Knicks had their hands full in the NBA Friday night, so the Saints, who never trailed, knocked off the previously undefeated Friars, 78-70, despite 44 points from Miami recruit Isaiah Wong, who scored 36 points in the second half and 24 in the fourth quarter alone.
The Saints (8-2, 4-0), however, left with a win and more balanced box score.
Neumann-Goretti junior point guard Hakim Byrd led the way with 23 points, while Rider recruit Chris Ings added 19.
