Sunrise Christian Overpowers Undefeated St. Benedict's For SJIT Title
As if one big-time upset wasn’t enough to make it a successful weekend, No. 21 Sunrise Christian Academy (KS) made a resounding statement Saturday to win the St. James Invitational Tournament in Hagerstown, MD.
Less than 24 hours after knocking off No. 4 Findlay Prep (NV) in the semifinals, the Buffaloes, led by junior Malik Hall and sophomore N’faly Dante, stunned No. 13 and previously unbeaten St. Benedict’s (NJ) 68-58 to take the crown.
It’s no secret this Sunrise squad was more than capable of winning the tournament, and it made sure to take down two of the best teams in the country to boost its resume for DICK’s Nationals.
