Myles Dread's Huge Second Half Powers No. 4 Gonzaga Over No. 5 St John's

Myles Dread's Huge Second Half Powers No. 4 Gonzaga Over No. 5 St John's

Myles Dread knows there is a chance his Gonzaga College High School (D.C.) team could fall short of winning the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title this weekend — but it's not going to be without a fight.

In Saturday's WCAC quarterfinals, the Penn State-bound senior helped keep the No. 4 seed Eagles' championship dreams alive by knocking down three 3-pointers in the second half to pull away from fifth-seeded St. John's (D.C.) for a 60-49 win at Gallaudet University in Washington D.C.

Dread finished with 21 points in the victory, which saw his squad trail by five to the Cadets at halftime. 

Gonzaga advances to face top-seeded Paul VI in the WCAC semifinals today at 4:30 PM ET. Watch LIVE on FloHoops.
