De La Salle 51, Fenwick 47
It’s no Cinderella story for De La Salle.
The Meteors are a little too talented for that. Despite entering the Chicago Catholic League Tournament with a .500 record, De La Salle punched its ticket to the championship round with a balanced 51-47 victory Wednesday night over visiting Fenwick.
Karl Harris scored a game-high 13 points, Martez Cameron chipped in 12 and Brandon Hutton did a little bit of everything, netting 10 points, three steals and two blocks for the Meteors. For Hutton, the team’s recent rise has been catalyzed by altruistic play.
“At the beginning of the season, we were kinda selfish and a little young,” Hutton said. “Everyone wanted to get theirs. After that, we came together as a team and started to gel.”
De La Salle’s 12-10 record is also a bit deceiving.
