Ryken 53, Carroll (D.C.) 48
The St. Mary’s Ryken boys basketball team got its first Washington Catholic Athletic Conference win of the season Tuesday night over visiting Archbishop Carroll of Washington D.C.
Carroll came out with the 12-8 first-quarter lead. Ryken came back with a seven-point run, thanks in part to a three-point shot by Stan Kaya. Sophomore forward Donte Etheridge brought the Knights to within two points just before the half as Carroll went into the locker room leading 23-21.
The Knights outscored the Lions 16-7 and took a 37-30 lead into the final quarter of play.
Junior guard and co-team captain Jamaal Satisfield led the Knights with 16 points. Kaya, a senior co-team captain, added 15 points and sophomore forward Jordan Oakley was also in double digits with 11 points.
With less than two minutes remaining in regulation, Kaya put the Knights up at 46-44 and was fouled while shooting. He completed both of his attempts at the free-throw line to make it 48-44.
Satisfield then added two points to extend the Ryken lead to six points. Carroll put up a three-pointer, but Ryken stopped all scoring with rebounds and timely turnovers.
St. Mary’s Ryken head coach Dave Tallman was happy with his young team of just two seniors.
The Knights are now 9-9 overall and 1-8 in the WCAC.
“We’re proud of our young guys,” Tallman said. “They battled to get a tough WCAC win for us. Success breeds success, so we hope it’s a sign of more to come.”
Ryken will rematch Carroll on Feb. 15 when they travel to Washington, D.C. The Knights’ next matchup is Tuesday at home when they host St. John’s of Washington, D.C. at 7 p.m.
Ryken 69, Carroll (D.C.) 57
On the girls side of things, the Knights came out with a 15-8 first-quarter lead and went into halftime with a 10-point lead at 36-26.
Carroll outscored Ryken in the third quarter 17-14, but Ryken held on in the final quarter for the win.
Cydney Smith finished with a game-high 26 points, while Brittani Burgess had 20 points.
Ryken (12-5, 5-3 WCAC) will host O’Connell (Va.) at 7 tonight.
