Pre-season #4 vs #15 – NJ Basketball at its best!!

The tragedy of the closing of St. Anthony High School will have a profound effect on the Dan Finn Classic as we move forward for the first time without them. While SA will never be replaced, a tremendous nationally significant contest between #4 Hudson Catholic and #15 Patrick School will go a long way in helping that happen.

The Patrick School, defending TOC champions, have graduated 7 players to division I colleges. If you feel sorry for them this year, don’t. The Celtics return 2017 contributors guard Al-Amir Dawes and 6’8″ forward Vladir Manuel to go along with a DI transfer in 6’10″international star Giorgi Bezhanishvili. Coach Chris Chavannes is confident that TPS will not skip a beat going forward.

Hudson Catholic, on the other hand, will be looked at as having potentially the best trio of players in the land; Ohio State commit Luther Muhammad, Oregon signee Louis King, and unsigned D1 prospect Jahvon Quinerly. But the Hawks actually return the entire nucleus of last year’s HCIAL and North Non-Public B championship team. Precious Ikediashi, Jonathan Delgado, and Danny Rodriguez along with a very talented incoming freshman class will make HC a tough nut to crack.

Patrick School returns to the Armory for the 4th time having beaten St. Anthony last year, while Hudson will be making its first appearance since 2011.
