Basketball team completes regular season sweep of McDowell

From the start of the second Prep vs. McDowell basketball game of the year (Prep won the first 52-47), it was clear Prep wanted it more. Despite playing in enemy territory at a sold-out McDowell High School gymnasium Matty Harris threw up the signature LeBron James chalk dust prior to the game, and backed it up with a Lebron-esque performance. After going up huge in the first quarter, the Ramblers seemed unbeatable. Harris had 29 points for the game and went over the 1,000-point mark for his career, passing Cliff Dennett and Mark Chase for career points.

McDowell took a 40-37 lead with 5 minutes left in the game. The Trojans finally had the momentum they were searching for the entire game. Felix Manus-Schell hit a 3-pointer to tie the game and to silence the McDowell fans and cheering section (which was out-matched and out-cheered by the Cathedral Prep student section the entire game).

Harris followed with 12 straight points. He played like a man possessed. No one could stop him. The Ramblers completed a 22-7 run to close out their 11th straight win over McDowell. Prep improved to a record of 13-7, winning another region 7 championship. The Ramblers have a good chance of seeing McDowell again for the D-10 championship and hopefully will be able to 3-peat for the year, and improve to 12 straight wins against the Trojans.
