The Holy Cross Knights defeated the Bishop Loughlin Lions, 60-57, netting the Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) Brooklyn/Queens Diocesan title for the second time in the last seven years.

The Holy Cross Knights capped off a rough season on a high note by defeating the Bishop Loughlin Lions, 60-57, netting the Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) Brooklyn/Queens Diocesan title for the second time in the last seven years.

Made up mostly of seniors, the second-seeded Knights fell behind by double digits early but clamped down defensively and went into halftime down by four. The fifth-seeded Lions showed their sophomore inexperience and relinquished the lead for good in the second half.

Senior Marquise Moore led all scorers dropping 21 points for Knights, while senior teammate Anthony Libroia finished the game with 10 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists. Elisha Boone led the Lions with 18 points. The Knights also recently defeated Archbishop Molloy in the CHSAA intersectional quarterfinals. Moore starred again, scoring 23 points, grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out six assists.
