Archbishop Carroll improves to 19-2 with win over Hallandale in tournament

Archbishop Carroll took Hallandale’s best shot and then delivered the one that extended its dream season to 19-2 at the Respect Series 3 Tournament presented by RMF Magazine and FloridaProspects.com

After watching resurgent Hallandale hang around in the first half and cut the lead to 41-34 with 2:50 in the third quarter, Gus Derbeaux’s three-pointer off a kickout pass from Christian Silva ignited the decisive run in a 63-48 victory at Chaminade on Saturday.

Bulldogs coach Juan Hernandez, who has thrust himself into the Class 4A Coach of the Year conversation, said his team’s unsung defense has been overshadowed by its signature drive-and-kick three-point shooters.

“Defense is something that doesn’t get talked about enough,” Hernandez said. “Everybody looks at us like a bunch of three-pointer shooters, but we hang our hat on defense.

“We felt in the third quarter there if we could get three consecutive stops it would be the difference in the game.”

Silva finished with a game-high 16 points for the Bulldogs, keyed by back-to-back three-pointers to close the second quarter and a steal and layup with a minute left to salt the game away.

The RMF Magazine No. 11 Bulldogs broke the game open with a three-pointer from Gabriel Russo to open the fourth quarter, a three-point play from Joseph Gomez (13 points) and John Aarestrup’s three-pointer of a pass from Gomez to push the lead to 57-42 with 4:30 left.

“In the second quarter they came back on us,” Silva said. “We stayed disciplined, and we stayed tough and got the lead back to double digits.

“I knew we had a special team here. We all work hard here. We are family. It’s no surprise to be 19-2. The game was tough. Hallandale attacks the rim well, but we stuck to our defensive plan. We stayed in front of the ball and didn’t allow them to shoot it.”

Devaris Parker, Jimmy Sylvain and Ashley Paul tied for a team-high nine points for the Chargers.
