CLEVER, Mo. — On the second day of the Clever Boys Basketball Invitational the Catholic Irish proved why they are the tournament’s second seed.
The Irish topped Fair Grove 80-53 on Tuesday to advance to the tournament semifinals.
The Eagles (0-1), playing in their first game of the season, raced out to a quick lead shortly after tip-off.
The Irish (2-0) stayed calm and following a John David Bigler three-pointer took the lead 13-12.
They would keep that momentum en route to picking up the win.
Catholic will play Central on Friday with a trip to the tournament championship on the line.
Fair Grove will play host Clever in the tournament’s consolation bracket on Thursday.
