The weather the past few days has been inconsistent.
One day it’s sunny, the next it’s snowing, the next it’s raining.
What has been consistent the past few days and so far throughout the 2012-13 Sunday Youth Basketball League season has been the play of the Archbishop Neale School boys basketball team.
Archbishop Neale was undefeated in 10 league games coming into Sunday’s action, where it would play twice in a matter of hours.
That consistency continued as Archbishop Neale, the only unbeaten team in the SYBL remaining, boys or girls, won both of its Sunday games and piled up more than 100 points in doing so.
Archbishop Neale downed Little Flower School, 57-26, and St. Michael’s School, 54-30.
Against Little Flower, Archbishop Neale led 22-4 after the opening quarter and 33-10 at halftime.
Archbishop Neale (12-0 overall) had 11 different players score in the contest. Jonathan Preston led with 13 points, while Jalen Gibbs had eight. Greg Lawrence led Little Flower (9-3) with 10 points, and Seth Blevins had nine.
Against St. Michael’s, Archbishop Neale led 17-6 after the first quarter and 30-8 at halftime.
Nine different players scored for Archbishop Neale in the contest. Gibbs led with 22 points, and Ryan Oglesby had 11. Jaleen Sauls led St. Michael’s (6-3) with 10 points, while Tyler Young had nine.
St. Michael’s picked up a 52-23 victory over Mother Catherine Spalding School on Sunday.
The game was tied at 12 after the first quarter, but St. Michael’s broke it open in the second quarter to lead 26-16 at halftime and allowed just seven second-half points.
Sauls led St. Michael’s with 21 points, while Young had 19. Brandon Lowe led Mother Catherine (5-6) with 12 points.
