St. Augustine Remains No. 1 With Win Over Atlantic City

What a week. The Inquirer's No. 1 and No. 2 teams met in three sports and St. Augustine was the only No. 1 to preserve its position.

WIth 29 points from Bill Giberson and 22 from Isaiah Morton, St. Augustine beat No. 2 Atlantic City, 71-63 in a Cape Atlantc American Division basketball game.

Giberson couldn't be stopped off the dribble. He went to the foul line 16 times, hitting 13, while shooting 8 for 12 from the field. He could be among the more improved players in South Jersey and he was pretty good last year.

Morton was unconscious in the third quarter, hitting four straight three-pointers, each one from NBA range.

He is the type of player who can look average for two and a half quarters - which he did against Atlantic City - and then personally dismantle a team by himself.

It was one of the great shooting exhibitions anybody would see, especially coming against a strong and quick defensive team like Atlantic City.

In the other No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchups, No. 2 Camden Catholic beat No. 1 Easten, 30-28 in wrestling.

No. 2 Eastern defeated No. 1 Washington Township, 56-53 in girls' basketball.
