Archbishop Carroll rode the long-distance shooting of John Camden and the inside game of Tairi Ketner to a 74-66 victory over St. Joseph’s Prep Wednesday and a trip to the quarterfinals of the Philadelphia Catholic League playoffs.
The 6-7 Camden drilled three three-pointers in the third quarter and scored the Patriots’ last four points at the free throw line on his way to 17 points.
The eighth-seeded Patriots (15-8) oppose Archbishop Wood, the top seed, or second-seeded Bishop McDevitt Friday in the quarterfinals.
“We haven’t peaked yet,” said Camden, who scored 13 points in the second half. “We continue to improve every game. And that’s what I think makes us the scariest team in the Catholic League, is that we’re underdogs. I think it just gives us an edge. Coming in as the eighth seed, no one’s expecting us to take down the No. 1 or the No. 2 seed or whoever we end up playing on Friday.”
