Denzil Richardson hit his first two jumpers from behind the arc to give Calvert Hall a quick 6-0 lead, and the Cardinals led wire-to-wire as they defeated Archbishop Curley, 62-40, on Wednesday night in Towson. Richardson finished with a game high 21 points to lead all scorers.
“Denzil is coming on,” said Bauersfeld. “He’s hitting his jump shot, which always helps loosen things up. We’re trying to get him to attack the basket a little more.”
Bauersfeld also got a strong performance from Michael Wade, who is coming off a shoulder injury suffered during the football season.
Wade had eight points in the first half and he finished with 11 as nine different players scored for the Hall (5-6).
Justin Beck keyed the third quarter with eight points for the Cards, and the Hall defense stifled the Friars in the final eight minutes, holding coach Andy Bauer’s team to eight points.
Bauersfeld said that it will take a team effort this year.
“We don’t have any super stars.”
Bauersfeld lost Jon Graham, who was in the gym as a fan on Wednesday, and Donya Jackson to graduation, and a new cast is looking to step-up for Calvert Hall.
Daxter Miles led Curley with 17 points, ten of which came in the first eight minutes of play. Niall Harrison added a dozen with strong inside play for the Friars (3-7).
