St. Mary’s boys basketball blows out Bishop Stang

NORTH DARTMOUTH — The St. Mary’s boys basketball team took the momentum from its Boverini Tournament title victory on Wednesday and carried that right into Thursday, going on the road to blow out Bishop Stang by a score of 69-31 in a Catholic Central League matchup.

The Spartans spread the ball around plenty in the victory, as 11 of the 14 players who saw playing time registered at least two points. Ali Barry led all scorers with 19 points to go along with three rebounds, while David Brown Jr. added 13 points from the point guard spot. Omri Merryman had a solid all-around game with 10 points, six rebounds and three blocks. Derick Coulanges and Nick Sacco each had four points and three rebounds, while Henri Miraka (four points), Donovan Clark (four points), Donel Kabongo Mutombo (four points) and Anthony D’Itria (three points) all played well.

The Spartans started fast and never looked back in this one, jumping out to a 27-4 lead in the first quarter and coasting for the rest of the way. The defensive intensity was particularly notable for St. Mary’s, as it only allowed 11 points in the opening half.

The second half was much of the same, as the St. Mary’s starters pushed the lead to nearly 40 points before they were pulled for the reserves to play the final 10-plus minutes.

St. Mary’s (6-1) travels to St. John’s Prep Sunday (12).
