Conner Delaney didn’t have the biggest of games Tuesday. But he was there when Episcopal Academy — and their Inter-Ac title hopes — needed him most.
Delaney saw his 3-pointer rattle home with 5.8 seconds left Tuesday as EA hit the road to top archrival Haverford School, 50-48, in a vital Inter-Ac battle.
It was one of only two baskets for Delaney on the day, giving him five points and putting the Churchmen a game ahead of the Fords atop the league.
Nick Alikakos scored 13 points to go with 15 rebounds and five blocks, including six points in a third quarter that EA started with an 8-0 run to get back into contention.
Matt Woods hit four 3-pointers to finish with 14 points, and Mike Jolaoso and Mike Hinckley supplied nine points apiece for EA (14-5, 5-1).
Shawn Alston scored 13 points, and Lamar Stevens added 11 for the Fords, but Stevens’ last-second drive to the hoop just rimmed out. Cameron Reddish and Derek Mountain contributed nine points apiece for the Fords (12-9, 4-2), who have lost two consecutive league games.
