Announcements and Important Events
SHC won the 2015 Bruce-Mahoney Basketball Game, 50-49 on January 13 in spectacular fashion.
Trailing by as many as 15 points late in the 3rd quarter, the Irish roared back to life late in the fourth. SHC outscored Saint Ignatius 12-2 over the final 4 minutes, winning on a buzzer-beater.
SI led 49-48 with 7.7 seconds remaining with their high scorer on the free throw line for a one-and-one. He missed the first free throw and outlet pass went to Omari Brown '15 on the baseline, who took the ball coast-to-coast through traffic for a highly contested layup as time expired.
Brown was mauled by his teammates near half court before the traditional post-game handshake and singing of the Alma Mater with the student section.
The 2015 Bruce-Mahoney Trophy competition will now come down to the baseball game at AT&T Park on March 28. This marks the first time since 2010 that the baseball game counts into the Bruce-Mahoney standings.
