12/04/2010 - NEBRASKA PREP CLASSIC: Roncalli's Second Half Comeback Stops Sterling Boys

OMAHA------The Sterling Jets got a taste of Metro basketball Saturday night.  Omaha Roncalli came out strong in the second half against the Jets and used a 26-13 point swing in the third quarter while on their way to a 76-68 win in the Nebraska Prep Classic at the Omaha Civic Auditorium.

Gayland Drake and Tyler Alitz were the one-two punch behind the Crimson Pride.  Using dribble penetration, Drake attacked the basket, then would dish off or score while on his way to scoring 29 points.  

Sterling led 21-19 after one and 34-31 at halftime.  Alitz, who finished with 21 points, started the second half by converting on a three point play for Roncalli.  

After a Steve Mucha basket, Sterling tied the game up at 36 off a basket from John Parrish.  Roncalli took the lead for good after Alitz hit a three and Mucha scored off a steal for a 41-36 lead.  The Crimson Pride led 57-47 after three and had a lead as big as 66-52 in the fourth quarter.  Roncalli's full-court pressure at times held Sterling at bay.

Connor Malone, who scored a game-high 30 points, had 16 points in the first half for Sterling (1-1).  Malone hit two threes and sank four three throws in the game, while converting on close range shots.  Parrish and Kody Benson were the next high scorers with six points a piece.
