Cristo Rey held Chapelgate Christian’s 6-8 forward Jason Murphy to just 10 points, but the visiting Yellow Jackets played even better defense, forcing 21 Cristo Rey turnovers and holding the Hornets to just 18 first half points on their way to a 74-43 MIAA non-league basketball rout, Tuesday night.
Murphy was a force non-the-less, grabbing 17 rebounds to complete and double-double and blocking six shots. Cliff McEachin and Montaz McCray were the top scorers, while Jake Tringali added nine.
Chapelgate (3-6) created 27 points in transition to fuel the victory.
Jaki Jones led Cristo Rey (2-6) with a game-high 15 points and Tim Peterson netted 10.
