Paul VI played strong defense and got key contributions from a couple of role players in a 59-40 win over Rancocas Valley in a clash of Top 6 teams on Saturday night.

Senior forward Jahvan Rosbia scored a season-high 12 and senior forward Alex Danko bounced off the bench and grabbed eight rebounds for the Eagles (11-1), the No. 2 team in the rankings.

"We got some good contributions from some other guys," Paul VI coach Tony Devlin said. "It was a really good win for us. That (RV) is a good team.

"This is a big win for us in terms of power points. We beat a quality Group 4 team with a lot of wins."

The Red Devils were within 18-16 at halftime but the Eagles opened the third quarter on a 9-0 run, punctuated by a breakaway slam by Jair Green.
