Ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, Camden Catholic (29-1) will meet Trenton Catholic (27-3) in Tuesday’s 8 p.m. TOC championship at the Izod Center.  No. 2 and fourth seeded Cherokee finished 24-7.

 

Camden Catholic led Cherokee, 32-24 after three quarters. The closest Cherokee got was 33-28 early in the fourth period.

Camden Catholic took a 21-18 halftime lead after going on a 5-0 run to end the second quarter. Wixted hit a long three-pointer and Tim Crawford scored on a layup right before the half.
