Top-seeded Benedictine rolled over Ravenna, 100-44, at home on Tuesday night.
Chris Jefferson started off the game with a easy layup to get the Bengals started. The Bengals kept their foot on the gas pedal throughout the whole game and never looked back.
Marlon Moore, recently named First Team All-NCL along with Jefferson, scored 17 points in the first quarter. He finished with 20 on the night.
After the game, Moore was asked about the hot start for both himself and his team.
“I’ve never done that before.” Moore said.
“I just wanted to run up a check and score many as possible.”
“No game is easy no matter what our opponent’s record is,” Moore also added. “But, we believe Friday will be a test for us and we’ll be ready.”
Benedictine head coach Rob Stircula used every player on his team in the win.
“Just wanted to give different looks and play everybody,” Stircula said.
The Bengals improve to 18-5 and will host seventh-seeded Orange (13-8) on Friday, March 3 at 7 pm.
