Central Catholic's DeShone Kizer (14) and Keith Towbridge (44) battle St. Francis' Jay Snell (42) and Josh Truscinski (32) for a rebound.
St. Francis de Sales looked like the team playing its season opener, while Central Catholic appeared to be in mid-season form Friday night.
In the first game of the season for the Irish, they opened the 2012-13 campaign with a 16-2 run and never looked back. With its first two games postponed because of the football team's run to the Division II state title, Central came out on fire and built a 29-10 lead at the half.
The Irish showed no rust in cruising to a 59-32 home win.
Senior forward Deontae Cole scored 17 of his game-high 21 points in the decisive first half. Read more here...
