“It’s really amazing to come back and just win it all over again, relive the experience,” said Kris Askew, another of the Knights’ four starting seniors. “We came out with a lot more energy [than the 50-42 loss]. We never gave up, even when they started coming down and hitting threes.”
ICCP senior Kevin Cheng had 14 points, followed by Askew with 12, Gaudio with 10 and senior Alex Meurer with nine and 11 rebounds.
For top-seeded Timothy (22-6), senior Brandon Orange had 18 points with two threes and six rebounds. Sophomore Matt Owens had 17 points, 15 in the second half, with three threes and junior Justin Baez had six points on two threes.
Last year, the Knights won the regional final 53-52 on a late basket.
