Brandeis Orange rebounded from a disappointing season-opening tournament, surging through the playoffs to the Brahma Bowl high school division title. Brandeis defeated John Jay in the final, 300-185, while Fulmore A erased a 105-point deficit in the final four tossups to edge Holy Family Blue, 280-265, in the middle school championship match.
St. Dominic Savio and Clark were the other nationals qualifiers from the high school division, while Fulmore B and St. Theresa Red were the semifinalists in the MS field.
The leading scorer in each division propeled his team to the final: John Jay’s Aeddon Chipman (90.5 PPG) and Holy Family’s Johnny Miri (87.22 PPG).
Next Saturday, TQBA will be at Lovejoy in North Texas for the Leopards’ Lair high school event.
