Dexter Strickland contributes 12 points in playoff win
Sunday, March 22, 2009
St. Patrick continued its dominant run in the NJISAA playoffs with a 66-40 rout of Lenape in the Tournament of Champions semifinals last night.
Kendall Peters paced Lenape (25-9) with nine points and Mike Celestin added seven, but a 20-point night from St. Patrick's Kyrie Irving coupled with double-digit efforts from Mike Gilchrist (13) and Dexter Strickland (12) doomed Lenape.
St. Patrick, from Elizabeth, will now look to capture its fifth TOC title and its first since 2007 when it plays Science Park. (Philadelphia Daily News)Related: Basketball Recruiting
