The Cardinals wrapped up their non-league schedule last night with a 73-36 victory over Swanton. Stritch was led by a balanced attack in the first half and went into the locker room with a 36-11 lead at the half. The second half was much of the same as it was a total team effort on both ends of the floor that secured the victory. Junior Jordan Burton led all scorers with 19 points, which included going 4 for 4 from behind the 3-point arc. Junior Little Anderson chipped in 13 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Sophomore Joey Holifield had very good all-around game scoring 10 points, bringing down 7 rebounds, dishing out 6 assists plus having 3 steals and a blocked shot on the defensive end. Senior Alex Adams scored 9 points, going 2 for 2 from behind the 3-point line and throwing down a two-handed slam dunk to excite the crowd. Junior Ashton Caryer came off the bench and provided a spark, scoring 9 points. Cardinal Stritch improved their overall record to 20-1 with tonight's victory. The Cardinals final game of the regular season is this Friday at home against Northwood. Please come out as the Senior Class will be taking the court at home for the last time.
