Calvary Christian boys’ basketball rolls in Kreul Classic

Calvary Christian used its Kreul Classic Under Armour Challenge matchup against Archbishop Carroll to prove there is more to the Eagles than its ballyhooed NBA sized front line.

Senior 6-5 guard Jerald Butler scored a game-high 20 points and the Eagles’ unsung players, who get overshadowed by 6-8 junior Solomon Uyaelunmo, 6-10 junior Elochukwu Eze and 7-0 Victor Uyaelunmo, came up big to help Calvary hold off the feisty Bulldogs 58-46 at Coral Springs on Monday.

Rasheem Etienne had 11 points, Angel Lebron had eight points and Kahleel Gray had six points, each played pivotal roles to help the Eagles (7-1, RMF Magazine No. 4) break away from a too close to call 40-38 lead entering the fourth quarter.

Butler, the most prominent name in the backcourt, said the Eagles’ other guards are out to prove they can hold their own.

“Our role players stepped up big time,” Butler. “Angel shot a clutch three, then took it down the middle, faked the pass and scored. Rasheem and Kahleel were coming down shooting clutch shots. Without them we would not have won the game. We hear all the time that we don’t have enough guards.”

Victor Uyaelunmo finished with 13 points, a career-high 27 rebounds and five blocks. Joseph Gomez, the Bulldog’s biggest player at 6-4, scored a team-high 13 points.

Archbishop (RMF Magzine No. 12) stayed in the game with its pesky full-court defense but ultimately their vaunted three-point attack failed them and the Eagles capitalized on that cold shooting to close the game out.

Victor Uyaelundo, a USC signee, converted a shot while being fouled to start the decisive spurt and give the Eagles a 46-40 lead with 4:54 left.

Gomez converted a three-point play to stem the tide but Uyaelundo added three free throws and timely offensive rebounding down the stretch to put the game away.

“Archbishop made us a whole lot better,” Butler said. “How to handle preassure. They are short but very tough and scrappy. We have to learn how to play through contact. This will help us alot. We have to know how to face adversity.”
